What number am I on the waiting list?

Please call (404) 270-2116 and follow the instructions

Why does my number move up and down on the waiting list?

The waiting list is based on two factors.  The time and date of your original application and preference codes.  If a persons preference code changes then their place on the waiting list will also change, which will cause other people's number to change on the waiting list.

When will I be getting an apartment?

DHA cannot tell you the exact time nor date when you will be able to interview for an apartment.  DHA on has a certain number of units available and it will all depend when people move out of the units.  Once a unit is vacated the DHA will start processing applications from the waiting list.  Usually ten at a time unless it is for the 4 and 5 bedrooms then it will be 5 applications at a time.  We will continue to pull applications until we find a person who qualifies for the unit.

What are the qualifications?

Some of the factors to be considered in the screening are:


   Criminal Records

   Credit Records

   Rent Paying Habits

   Prior History as a tenant

and all other aspects of applicant's ability to maintain the required responsibilities of tenancy.
