Apply for Housing

To apply for housing at the Franklin Redevelopment and Housing Authority a family must be on either the Public Housing or Housing Choice Voucher program waiting list.  Due to the high demand, and the size of the current waiting lists, both programs’ waiting lists are closed.  When either list is opened, FRHA will advertise a date that the list will be opened along with instructions on applying for housing.

The Public Housing waiting list was most recently opened on June 3, 2013 and closed on June 14, 2013.  Families submitting an application during that time will be notified as to the status of their application.  Information included in the application will be verified up to the point of being housed.  We ask that you be patient as we go through this process.  Due to the great need for housing, and the limited supply, an applicant may remain on the waiting list for several years.  During this time, it is extremely important that applicants maintain updated contact information by visiting the FRHA main office below.
