Public Housing Waiting List Status : Open

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

Please note: The Kearney Housing Agency manages the Public Housing program for the Gibbon Housing Agency.

The Gibbon Housing Agency (GHA) is currently accepting Public Housing waiting list pre-applications for near elderly/disabled households.

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.
  • The GHA does not offer a Public Housing program for families.
The GHA offers near elderly/disabled housing, ranging in size from 1 to 2 bedrooms.

To apply, submit an online application here.

Once the pre-application has been submitted, you will receive a confirmation number. Please print or write down that number for future reference.

Documents are not needed at this time.

The GHA does have a preference for victims of a natural disaster.

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 In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list. Contact the housing authority to find out how to update application information.

For more information, visit the KHA website, or call the office at 308-234-3000 during normal office hours.
