How to Apply

Applicants requesting housing through Fresno Housing Authority are placed on a wait list and contacted for pre-screening interviews as vacancies occur.  Applicants are then offered units as they become available. See Application Process Information (PDF)

Is there a waiting list?

Yes. But the Waiting List for Low-Income Public Housing is currently open and accepting applicants. Remember, getting on the waiting list is the first step in the process of accessing rental units in Housing Authority-owned properties.

How much will the rent be?

Households that qualify for a unit owned or managed by Fresno Housing Authority pay approximately 30% of their income (or a minimum of $50, whichever amount is higher). Documentation must be provided to Fresno Housing in order to determine the rent amount. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) contributes toward the tenant’s rent balance and supports the management and maintenance of Fresno Housing Authority properties.
