Habitat Affordable - Waitlist Information

The Habitat Company offers an array of Affordable subsidized and non-subsidized housing. 
"Subsidized housing" is also known as "Section 8 housing", in which the resident's portion of the rent is based on 30% of the household's adjusted income. 
"Non-subsidized affordable housing" is targeted towards low-income renters who pay a low fixed rent.


Subsidized Housing Wait lists


Due to high demand for subsidized housing, The Habitat Company maintains wait lists for its subsidized low-income housing programs.  Most of these wait lists currently are closed and are not accepting applications.  Individuals interested in residing in one of these low-income housing developments are encouraged to check this page periodically for notices of wait list openings.


Open wait lists are announced on Habitat's Affordable Housing Hotline at (312) 595-3250.
