Although KCHA cannot determine how long you will wait for housing, the list above shows you the number of applicants on the waiting lists for this property. You should only use these numbers as a rough guideline. The length of time it takes to reach the top of the list varies. It depends on:
- The date and time you applied.
- The number of current residents who move out.
- The number of applicants who qualify for waiting list preferences.
KCHA has no way of knowing how many vacancies it will have in the coming months and years. This is why we cannot tell you exactly when you will reach the top of a waiting list.
