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.

Rent Paying Habits
Prior History as a tenant
and all other aspects of applicant's ability to maintain the required responsibilities
