***All Applicants selected for the Waiting List will be notified by mail***

What happens after I submit my application?
Once your application has been submitted online, it may be selected for processing via a random lottery completed by an independent third party.  Please understand that not all applicants will be placed on the waiting list as many more applications are expected than can be assisted.  Incomplete and inaccurate applications will not be processed.  
You will be notified by mail if your application has been accepted for processing.  At that time, you will be asked to come in for an orientation and to provide additional information such as proof of citizenship / immigration status, employment verification and others.  Please make sure to respond by the deadline to ensure your application remain active.
Due to the anticipated high volume of calls we will not be able to verify your application status by phone.  All applicants who are selected via lottery for further processing will be notified by mail.

APPLICATION FRAUD ALERT !!! Please be aware that LHA will NEVER charge applicants to submit an application for placement on the Waiting List. Be aware of scams that may be attempting to collect your personal information and fraudulently charge you to apply for the Waiting List.
The Housing Authority of the City of Lawrenceville (LHA) was established on May 8, 1950 and was funded through the Housing Act of 1937 for the purpose of providing decent, safe, and sanitary housing to the low-income citizens of Lawrenceville and the surrounding areas. Since its establishment, LHA has developed 9 housing sites with a total of 212 public housing units. The Authority's operating fund consists of rental income and federal subsidies from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Most residents served by the Housing Authority are elderly and working families. 

For more detailed information about LHA and LHC programs, please visit the Housing Programs tab above.
Why Public Housing is Important
Lawrenceville Housing Authority knows that creating safe and decent places to live can have incredibly positive effects on a family's health, on a student's education, and on a neighborhood's overall attractiveness and viability. 

With so much at stake, the LHA makes it a top priority to provide safe,decent public housing options.
LHA in the Community
The Lawrenceville Housing Authority works collaboratively with community partners to provide resident services and programming and inform participants of community resources and other opportunities that will lead to greater independence, increased financial literacy, and systemic change.
