There is NEVER a charge to apply for federally funded public housing. Do not ever fall victim to any type of scam that attempts to charge you to apply for public housing assistance. Do not use any internet website that says that they can get you on a waiting list for a fee. These are scams and you will not be placed on a waiting list. You will just pay money that will not do anything to help you. If any federal agency ever asks you for money to be placed on a waiting list you should immediately contact your local HUD office. Private apartments and private landlords are able to charge you an application fee. Click below to see a warning regarding Waiting List Scams:
If you applied for the Low Rent Housing Program and your household consists of less than five individuals your Low Rent Housing wait list application will be dropped. We only have three and four bedroom homes. Your Housing Choice Voucher application will remain in place. Only the Low Rent Housing wait list application is dropped.
The link above will allow you to log in and see your current position on the waiting list. You can also update your application. Once you click the link and the screen changes, click the “View your Application” button to begin.
You must keep your e-mail address current. We will not send updates by any method other than e-mail.
You are responsible for updating your application information during the 30 day period of January 15 – February 15 and again during the period of July 15 – August 15. Failure to update your information during this time period will automatically drop you from the wait list. You will be assigned a position based on your selected preference (if applicable), date, and time of application. The wait list is updated on the 5th business day of the month. Plano Housing Authority will not release any wait list information over the telephone.
Plano Housing Authority will only accept applications for the waiting list during an announced open period. We do not offer any form of emergency housing. Click the External Resources tab at the top of the page for agencies that may be able to provide addional resources.
We will make a Public Notice in the local newspaper and on our website at least 30 days before the wait list opens.
