How To Apply to the Waiting List

As of July 2017, the Cottonwood Housing Authority (CHA) is currently accepting Public Housing waiting list pre-applications for families and senior/disabled households.

To apply:

  • Visit the CHA office to pick up a pre-application, located at 29 Willow Ln., Cottonwood, AL 36320, from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm, Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays; and on Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm CT.
  • Request to have a pre-application mailed to you by calling (334) 691-2451, from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays; and on Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm.

Once the pre-application has been completed, you must call the CHA office to schedule an appointment to turn in the pre-application at (334) 691-2451, from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays; and on Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm.

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

The CHA does not have a preference.

Qualified applicants will be placed on the waiting list by the date and time the pre-application is received.

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 application information changes from the time the original was submitted (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 In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, the applicant's name may be terminated from the waiting list. Please contact the housing authority to find out its policy on updating pre-application information.

For more information, call the CHA office at (334) 691-2451 from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays; and on Wednesdays and Fridays from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm.
