IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you have a disability, you have the right to request reasonable accommodation to participate in the application process. For more information please contact the Admission’s office at (775) 329-3630.

Do you have an active application with the Reno Housing Authority?

If YES, verify you have an active account by logging in or registering for the Applicant Portal
If NO, you will need to complete the entire application process.

Before you begin the application process review the Requirements and Available Program Information.


Please have your social security number, legal names and dates of birth of all family members. You will also need the income information for all family members, including children. The application is broken into 11 sections. In section 9 of the application process you will be shown a list of all open waitlists; however, you will only be allowed to select waitlists you qualify for (highlighted in green). Qualification is based on the information you provided in sections 1 through 8. If you do not qualify for any open waitlists, you will not be able to complete an application. Please double check all typed information before submitting your application. Submit only ONE application. Duplicate applications will not be accepted.

Applications can be received online anytime while the waitlist is open. You will receive a confirmation number to acknowledge successful transmission of the application. Please keep this number for your records. By submitting this pre-application information, you are not guaranteed placement on any waiting list.

Maintaining Your Status on the Waiting List
If you are added to the waiting list, you will be notified by mail outlining the application process. If you do not respond to our notifications, or your mail is returned undeliverable, you will be removed from the waiting list. If you have a change of address, phone number, income or family size, you must notify us within 10 business days of the change. ALL CHANGES MUST BE IN WRITING. You can make changes through the online applicant portal or by coming to the RHA office located at 1525 E. 9th Street. No changes will be taken over the phone.
