Open Until Further Notice: Public Housing Waiting List

Please Note: Due to the decentralized nature of affordable housing information, the information about this waiting list may be out of date.

The Des Arc Housing Authority (DAHA) is currently accepting Public Housing waiting list pre-applications for families and senior/disabled households.

The DAHA offers one Public Housing communities for families and senior/disabled households, ranging in size from 1 to 3 bedrooms.

There are two ways to apply:

  1. Visit the DAHA office to pick up a pre-application, located at 505 2nd Street, Des Arc, AR 72040, from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm; and 1:00 pm and 4:30 pm CT, Monday-Friday.
  2. Request to have a pre-application mailed to you by calling (870) 256-4577, from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm; and 1:00 pm and 4:30 pm, Monday-Friday.
Once the pre-application has been completed, it can be mailed or hand delivered to the address listed above.

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 DAHA does not have a preference. 

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 In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list.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

For more information, call the DAHA office at (870) 256-4577 from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm; and 1:00 pm and 4:30 pm, Monday-Friday.
