Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO)Thank you for your interest in Hagerstown Housing Authority’s housing programs.  We maintain waiting lists for our housing programs according to Federal housing laws. Our online pre-application is an easy, step-by-step way to get your name on our waiting lists.

Please note:

If you would like to make a change to your application, please DO NOT submit a new application. Instead, please complete an Application Change Form. The form is available from the online menu of our Web site, under Resident Information ... Forms, or you may come into our office to complete it.

If you want to be added to anyone else’s lease or application, please DO NOT submit a new application. Instead, please contact our office to be added to the existing lease or application.

DO NOT submit an application for any program more than once. If you have already applied for a program, you can check your status on the waiting list by clicking this link: Waitlist Status

You must complete the entire application for the application to be valid.

Before you begin the application, you must have the names, dates of birth, and Social Security Numbers available for all household members.  You should also know the amount of income and assets for each household member.

If you are unsure which housing program or property is right for you, go back and review the property and program descriptions on our Web site before beginning the application.
