How do I qualify for housing assistance?

The Housing Authority completes an eligibility check on every applicant. This includes income verification, criminal background, past rental history, and a credit check. Applicants must provide current photo identification for anyone 18 years of age or older and social security cards for every member of the household.

How long does it take to get a housing unit or receive a S8 voucher after applying?

Applications are date and time stamped when they are received. The Public Housing waiting list is compiled based on the bedroom size required by the family and the date and time of application. The Section 8 waiting list is also compiled according to date and time of application.

Are there housing preferences?

The Housing Authority provides preferences for those who are homeless and living in a shelter and to those who live or work in Salina, KS.
