Apply for Housing

move in signatureIf you are looking for affordable housing in Macon or Taylor counties then the Flint Area Consolidated Housing Authority is just the place to help!  There are 347 apartments ranging from 1 – 5 or more bedrooms in our program.  FACHA also has some stand alone housing.

If you are looking for a house or you or a family member is 62 or older, then please check out our Non-Profit Partners as they may be able to help with other housing alternatives.

As a potential resident there are a few things that need to be accomplished to successfully move in.  New residents need to fill out an application and mail or drop off all documentation including the credit waiver and background waiver to start the process.

Our background checks usually take about two weeks to complete.  Get those applications in early, don’t delay!!!  The Flint Area Consolidated Housing Authority does not do emergency housing, our process takes time.

After the check is complete FACHA sends the applicant an offer letter.

Once an offer is mailed the new resident has 3 days to respond and accept or reject the offer of housing.  If one accepts then the Admissions & Occupancy Clerk will set up an appointment to begin the leasing process right away!

Recertification Information

Each resident of the Authority must reapply for housing assistance every year.  This process is called “RECERTIFICATION”.   Recertification is important to the operation of the public housing program. The admissions officer will contact the lease holder at least thirty (30) days in advance of his/her lease anniversary.  The required notice will ask the resident to provide updated information Paula and Clientregarding the family size and the family income.  Failure to respond to the recertification notice can result in lease termination or in the resident being charged a market rate rent until he/she responds.  If ninety (90) days pass and the resident has still failed to respond to the recertification notice or if the resident does not provide the required documents to the admissions officer then eviction proceedings will begin.  More information about recertification can be found in Section 6(a) and (b) of the lease agreement.    Contact the Housing Authority Office if you have questions regarding the recertification process.

Residents attending a recertification must bring with them:

  • Proof of Income
  •  4 current paystubs
  • Proof of Child Support Payments
  • Social Security Award Letter
  • Proof of Childcare
