If you currently reside in a Housing Authority property, the information on this page will answer common questions and give helpful tips that will make your tenancy a great experience.
You may submit a maintenance request online, or you may contact your Resident Manager to submit a request by phone. If you do not have a Resident Manager, please call your Occupancy Specialist and they will submit a request for you.
At most of our properties, rent is due by the 5th day of each month at 5:00 PM. We do not accept checks from people who are not in the household and we do not accept cash. If you have a Resident Manager please pay rent at your onsite office. There are drop boxes available at all sites for after-hour payments. For more specific details on rent payments, please refer to your lease. You can PAY ONLINE.
A reasonable accommodation is a change, modification, alteration or adaptation in policy, procedure, practice, program, or facility that provides a qualified individual with a disability the opportunity to participate in, or benefit from, a program (housing or non-housing) or activity. This guide will assist you in understanding the process for requesting a reasonable accommodation.

The Housing Authority inspects its units every six months at a minimum to ensure the units are being maintained properly, both by the tenant and by the Housing Authority. If you have a Housing Choice Voucher or live in an apartment complex funded by outside agencies you will have more frequent inspections. We will try our best to combine inspections when possible to minimize the intrusion into your home.
To help you prepare for an inspection, we have developed a check list that will help you address all the areas we will look at.
