PUBLIC HOUSING WAIT LISTS CLOSING

The Wilson Housing Authority will be closing the wait lists for its 4 and 5-bedroom units on April 15, 2021, because of the large number of applicants that we currently have for those units. All applications for those units in our public housing neighborhoods will have to be delivered to the Wilson Housing Authority by that time for them to be considered. The waiting lists for our 1, 2 and 3-bedroom units are already closed.

After April 15 all of the waiting lists for public housing will be closed because of the large number of applicants that we have for all of these units.

In addition to our public housing units, the wait list for our Tasman Towers at C. Bruce Rose Plaza and Varita Court Apartments, both of which serve residents 62 years old and older, are also closed.

If you have any questions, please call or email Timothy Rogers at 252-291-2245 ext. 225 or at trogers@wilsonha.org.

PUBLIC HOUSING APPLICATION

PUBLIC HOUSING

Public (low-income) housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities.

Public (low-income) housing is limited to low-income families and individuals. WHA determines eligibility based on:

  1. Annual gross income
  2. Local preferences (subject to change based on the agency’s Annual Plan)
  3. U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status.
If a family is eligible, WHA will check criminal background and references to ensure that the family will be a good tenant. The Authority may deny admission to any applicant who may be expected to have a detrimental effect on other tenants or on the community’s environment.

In addition to subsidizing living units for various family sizes, WHA offers public (low-income) housing units that are specifically designated for seniors and adults with disabilities.
