The waiting list is updated nightly on the Applicant Portal.

The Housing Authority of the City of Austin does not provide immediate housing. At this time the housing authority is accepting applications for the public housing program. Once an application is filled out, applicants are placed on a waiting list according to the date and time of their application, size of the unit for which they qualify (public housing only) and local preference for which they may qualify. For immediate temporary housing, please contact the Salvation Army.
