Other Waitlist: Open

This information was last updated on April 29th, 2016.

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

The YHA offers one Public Housing community with 75 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.

There are two ways to apply:

  1. Visit the YHA to pick up an application, located at 215 N Lincoln Ave., York, NE 68467, from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm CT, Monday-Friday. If the office is closed, you can get an application on the wall outside the office.
  2. Request to have an application mailed to you by calling (402) 362-5900 from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm, Monday-Friday.
Once the application has been completed, it can be mailed or hand delivered to the address listed above, during the times listed.

Documents are not needed to turn in the application. However, after the YHA has reviewed the application,  you will receive an appointment to come in to the office to finish the application process. At the time of the appointment be sure to bring in all of the documents that are on the front of the application.

The YHA does have a preference for elderly and disabled applicants.

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 In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list.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, call the YHA office at (402) 362-5900 from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm, Monday-Friday.

Public Housing Property Inspection Scores

All public housing projects and privately owned rental properties with project-based Section 8 contracts are inspected every 1 to 3 years by HUD’s Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC). The mission of REAC is to insure that HUD’s multifamily portfolio is well maintained, free of health and safety risks for tenants and to prevent waste, fraud and abuse in HUD’s multifamily programs.

The highest REAC score possible is 100 points. Points are awarded in five inspectable areas: site, building exteriors, common areas, systems and units. Points may be weighted differently for different property types. For example, an urban property with little to no grounds might have a score weighted more on the building exteriors and less on the site whereas a suburban property with acres of land will be weighted more on the site review.

The frequency of REAC inspections is determined by the last REAC score a property received. If a property receives a REAC score of 90 or higher, the next REAC inspection will be scheduled in 3 years. Scores of 80 to 89 require re-inspection in 2 years and scores of 60 to 79 require re-inspection in a year.

A score of less than 60 is considered failing. Scores of 31 to 59 require re-inspection in 60 days and scores of 30 or lower are referred to a HUD Enforcement Center for corrective action.
