The Applicant Portal is an optional component in PHA-Web that provides housing authorities the ability for applicants to apply for housing online. Applicants can also view their current position and status on waiting lists as well. The Applicant Portal is accessed through a link on the housing authority’s website.
Applicants who apply online will have their information saved to waiting lists in PHA-Web in real time. No additional synchronization process is required by the housing authority. Applicants can apply for any waiting list that is open or made accessible to the portal.
In addition to being able to apply for housing, applicants can update their contact information, select communication preferences, and securely exchange documents with the housing authority using the portal. Additional link is provided for applicants to view their waiting list position.
More than 286,000 online applications have been entered into PHA-Web
