  • go to the housing place. Your gonna have to look it up to find out where it is in your area. I know my hubby and i did it and they said there is a 6 month to year waiting list... it SUCKS

  • uhmmmm apply through your county offices I think or your town or state. Try googling them and see what comes up. Good for you for setting plans in motion for housing!

  • Yup go right down to the housing complex, and find their office. The wait list is typically at least a year (at least in my state). Or you can contact a worker at Social Services and ask them where you can find assistance.

  • Whatever you do, don't give up!! You might try going at this in reverse and looking for some housing that you already know is low-income or open to those on financial aid, then asking the property manager who their liaison is. Sometimes if you go after what you want from the other end, instead of just accepting "there's a one-year waiting list", you can get results faster. Check with local churches as well; if they don't personally offer housing assistance (and a lot of your larger ones do!), they will probably also know the name/number of someone who can help you get faster results.
