WHA How to apply

How to apply:
You can complete universal applicants online for state aided programs (Golden Heights I and Second Island) at www.mass.gov/dhcd by visiting "Public Housing Applications & Documentation". You can also call the authority's office at 508-943-1634 to request forms, or pick them up in person.

You can complete pre-applications online for Section 8 through the Centralized Waiting list at www.section8listmass.org and return it to our office. This will place you on the wait list at 86 other housing authorities.

Applications for Golden Heights II are not available online, but can be obtained by calling or visiting the WHA office.

What happens once you apply: we will review your application and send you a Notice of Preliminary eligibility or a Notice of Ineligibility. You will remain on the waiting list until your name is at the top. At that time we will perform a final screening in which we verify all income, assets and expenses as well as complete a credit check, reference check and criminal record/sex offender review. After application submission, all correspondence will be in writing and you must keep us updated of any address/information changes in that same manner.
