Subsidized Housing

Subsidized housing at Valli Kee in Kent

KCHA's waiting list for subsidized housing is temporarily closed. During this temporary closure, KCHA is reviewing and refining its policies and procedures related to the waiting list and transitioning to new housing-management software. All of this will position KCHA to improve its service to applicants going forward. The waiting list will reopen once the software conversion and restructuring are successfully completed.

Subsidized housing helps people with low incomes rent housing they can afford. In most cases they pay no more than 30 percent of their income for rent and utilities.

KCHA owns and manages nearly all of this housing. It includes more than 80 properties, many of which have on-site social services. They do not take Section 8 vouchers.

Types of Housing – Some properties mostly serve families; others are open only to seniors and people with disabilities.

Eligibility – Tenants must meet income, age, and suitability guidelines.

How to Apply – The subsidized housing waiting list is not accepting new applications.

Application Changes – If your application details change, you must report the changes to KCHA as soon as you can.

Waiting List – For households already on the waiting list, KCHA selects most households from 2 main types of lists: regional lists and site-based lists.

If you already rent housing from KCHA, visit the Residents section of this site.
