Minneapolis Public Housing Authority Two Bedroom Family Wait List

Ongoing Wait List Opening 
MPHA’s Two-Bedroom Family Waitlist is open the 3rd Wednesday of each month beginning June 21, 2017, until further notice. Please check the MPHA website for details on how to apply starting June 21, 2017 and every 3rd Wednesday thereafter. 

Eligibility 
Applicants must have at least two family members to qualify for a two-bedroom unit. One family member must qualify as a Head of Household and one member must be a Dependent. (A Dependent is a person who is less than 18 years of age, a Disabled Person, or a full-time student; it does not include the Head of Household or a foster child.) Eligibility for all of MPHA’s public housing requires family annual income at or below 80 percent of Area Median Income ($54,400 for a family of two; $61,200 for a family of three). 

Placement on Wait List
Applicants who apply during the initial opening period (June 1 to June 3, 2017) and who meet the eligibility criteria will be placed on the waitlist according to preference points, without regard to time of submission. Applicants may call MPHA’s automated phone number at 612- 342-1553 five days after submission to check their status on the waitlist. Applicants who apply on subsequent  opening dates will be placed below those who have applied earlier, then ordered by preference points. 

Notification
MPHA will notify applicants when their name nears the top of the wait list and MPHA is ready to begin the screening process. Families who meet the screening criteria, after verification of their preference points, will be offered units when a unit becomes available (and according to their place on the wait list). 

Suburban Opportunities 
Qualified applicants may have the choice to rent a unit in a suburban location. MPHA partners with privately-owned, mixed-finance developments that include family public housing units developed under the Metropolitan Housing Opportunities Program (MHOP). These units are in the following communities: Chaska, Columbia Heights, Eden Prairie, Golden Valley, Maple Grove, Minneapolis, Mounds View, New Hope, Plymouth, St. Francis and Watertown. 

Updating Information 
MPHA requires current information for each applicant. All applicants must inform MPHA in writing of a change in family composition, address, phone number, or email address. Update forms may be downloaded at www.mphaonline.org.
