How to Apply for LIHI Housing   (Como se aplica para alojamiento de LIHI: en español clic AQUI)

LIHI is one of the most productive affordable housing developers in the Northwest. LIHI owns and/or manages over 1,800 housing units at over 40 sites in six counties throughout the Puget Sound region. Eighty percent of LIHI housing is reserved for households earning less than 30 percent of the area median household income.

LIHI housing falls into 2 basic categories:

1) Housing where the rent is 30% of the tenant’s income. This housing is reserved for persons making 30% or less of the Area Median Income: about $18,000/year. The majority of this housing is reserved for seniors, persons with disabilities, or families with children 18 and under. Each property that has these units keeps a waiting list. To get on the waiting list, please call the manager of the property. To see a list of these properties, please see the Waitlist Properties section below.

2) Housing that has a fixed rent amount. There is no waiting list for these units. Vacancies are listed below in the Vacancies section. These units require that the tenant have income equal to two times the amount of the rent. So, if the rent for a unit is $500/month, then the tenant must have income of $1000/month to qualify.  Applications must be mailed, faxed, or emailed to the manager's office at the property. Do not send any applications to the LIHI main office. We do our best to list vacancies on this page as they happen, but if you are interested in a particular property please call the onsite manager of that property as they will have the most up-to-date vacancy information.

WAITLIST PROPERTIES (rent is 30% of your income for all of these units):

You will need to call the manager of a property to get on its waiting list. Do not mail in an application.

Vacancies (no waiting list) (Viviendas disponibles):

For the units listed in this section, mail, fax, email, or hand deliver a PRE-APPLICATION directly to the manager of the unit you are interested in. WE WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY APPLICATIONS AT THE MAIN OFFICE.

Applications are processed on a first come, first served basis. If your application is approved, the apartment manager will contact you and explain the next steps you will need to take. You will need to respond quickly. If you do not, they will contact the next applicant in line. Managers will take the first qualified tenant with a deposit to hold the unit. Once the unit you have applied for is filled, all applications for that unit will be destroyed. Neither the apartment manager nor LIHI will keep any applications on file. You must submit a new application for each new vacancy you are interested in.

Rent Amount note: Rents are listed either as a $ figure or as a % of income. If it is a $ figure, then the rent is that amount. If it is a %, then rent will be an amount equal to that % of your monthly income.
