Public Housing Waiting List Status
Affordable Housing Online is tracking the status of the Osceola Housing Authority Public Housing Waiting Lists. This is what
we know as of our most recent update January 21st, 2016.
The Osceola Housing Authority (OHA) is currently accepting Public Housing waiting list pre-applications for families and senior/disabled households.
The OHA offers one Public Housing community with 357 units for families and senior/disabled households, ranging in size from 1 to 4 bedrooms.
Please note: This waiting list has preferences. This means that applicants who qualify for these preferences will receive assistance before applicants who do not. Because of there preferences, it is likely applicants who do qualify will have a long wait to receive assistance, or will not receive assistance from this office.
To apply, visit the OHA to pick up a pre-application, located at 501 W Coston Ave., Osceola, AR 72370, from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm; and 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm, Monday-Thursday; and from 8:00 am until 11:30 am CT on Fridays.
Once the pre-application has been completed, it must be hand delivered to the address listed above, from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm; and 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm, Monday-Thursday; and from 8:00 am until 11:30 am on Fridays.
Be sure to include these documents with the pre-application: Social Security Cards and birth certificates for all household members, proof of all income, and photo IDs for all adult household members.
The OHA does have a preference for: Disabled, elderly, Working families, and non working families.
Important note: Applicants will receive a confirmation number when either applying, or being placed on the waiting list, depending on housing authority policy. It is important to keep that number in a safe, easy to access place. It will be needed any time when referencing your pre-application with the housing authority.
If any of your application information changes from the time you submitted the original pre-application (such as contact information, income, and household members), inform the housing authority immediately. In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list. Please contact the housing authority to find out its policy on updating pre-application information.
