Affordable Housing Online is tracking the status of the Genoa Housing Authority Public Housing Waiting Lists. This is what we know as of our most recent update April 29th, 2016.

The Genoa Housing Authority (GHA) is currently accepting Public Housing waiting list applications for general occupancy.

The GHA offers one Public Housing community with 20 units for general occupancy, ranging in size from 1 to 2 bedrooms. Please only apply if your family composition can fit into one of these units.

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 these preferences, applicants who do not qualify may have a longer wait to receive assistance.

To apply, visit the GHA to pick up an application, located at 301 E Willard St., Genoa, NE 68640, from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm CT, Monday-Friday.

Once the application has been completed, it must be hand delivered to the address listed above from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm, Monday-Friday.

Be sure to include these documents with the application: Social Security Cards and birth certificates for all household members, photo IDs for all adult household members, and proof of all income.

The GHA does have a preference for elderly and disabled households.

Important note: Applicants who have been placed on the waiting list must inform the housing authority immediately if your application information changes (such as contact information, income, and household members). In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list.
