Like most landlords, SHA screens rental applicants.
- To be considered suitable, you must be able to pay rent when due, take care of the unit, and live peacefully with your neighbors.
- SHA investigates housing history, credit history, employment and criminal history.
Citizenship and immigration status
- For SHA’s Low-Income Public Housing or Seattle Senior Housing Program, you do not need to be a U.S. citizen at the time of application. However, at the time of move-in at least one household member must either be a U.S. citizen or have eligible immigration status. Full assistance is provided to households where every member has eligible citizenship status. Pro-rated assistance is provided to households with at least one eligible member.
- Your immigration eligibility will be verified after you are contacted about a vacancy. Learn more about how citizenship and immigration status affects assistance.
- Citizenship and immigration status requirements vary in the Special Portfolio and Tax Credit programs
