Welcome to Lafayette Housing Authority’s online application page! Before you begin the application, you will need the names, dates of birth, and Social Security Numbers for all household members. You should also have available the amount of income, assets, and expenses for each household member.
Once the initial online application is completed, you will receive an email from LHA that verifies the receipt of your application and will contain information about the completion of your application. Once your application is completed, your name will be placed on the applicable waiting list and you will be notified by LHA once your name reaches the top of the waiting list.
LHA has adopted a preference system that provides qualifying applicants a priority over applicants not qualifying for preferences. Preferences claimed by applicants will be verified prior to selection to ensure placement on the waiting list is valid.
When completing an application for Project-Based Voucher assistance, you will need to apply for the appropriate bedroom size your family would qualify for. To help you make a selection, below is a table that indicates the qualifying number of bedrooms a family may qualify for based on the number of household members.
