In July, Home Forward will be opening a waiting list for public housing apartments at Stephens Creek Crossing in Southwest Portland.
Under construction now, our latest HOPE VI redevelopment is on track to open in January 2014. In addition to brand new homes, residents will be joining a community of opportunity and have access to a variety of programs that help them move forward in their lives.
The application period runs from Tuesday, July 9 through Saturday, July 13. Applications will be taken applications online, as we did for our Section 8 waiting list opening last November. Of note:
1) After being ranked by preference, the applications will be placed in random order, so folks may apply at any time the waiting list is open. The date and time they apply will not affect their order on the list.
2) Staff at agencies can fill out the online application on behalf of clients, as they may have done when we had a paper application process.
