Q: Where Are You Located?
A: The Housing Authority of Versailles is located at 519 Poplar Street, Versailles, Kentucky, 40383.
Q: When Can I Apply For Housing?
A: We accept requests for Housing applications by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. After we receive your request for an application, our office will send a return email requesting additional information from you. Once you submit your additional information, the office will email you a housing application through DocuSign. You will have 30 days to complete the application before it expires. Please follow the instructions carefully.
Q: How Does The Application Process Work?
A: Many factors will be reviewed to determine your eligibility for housing. The application process begins once we receive your application through DocuSign. The Housing Authority will then gather information such as: your credit report, your rental history (from your current and former landlords), your criminal background check and your status with any other low-income housing agencies. Character references will be checked as well. Once this information is received, your household income will be verified and a decision regarding eligibility will be made. You will be notified by the Housing Staff to schedule an appointment to come into the office for copies to be made of your documents (birth certificates, social security cards, award letters, pay stubs & picture identification).
You can assist our staff during the application process by ensuring all information on the application is filled out HONESTLY, COMPLETELY AND ACCURATELY. You will need to arrive promptly at your scheduled appointment time. If you arrive late for your scheduled appointment, the office staff will reschedule you for another time. If you cannot make your appointment, please call our office to reschedule. Also, please keep your mailing address, email and telephone number current as this is very important for us to contact you. If any requested information changes, please call the office so your application can be updated.
Q: When Will I Find Out If I Qualify For Housing?
A: Determining your eligibility for housing can take an average of seven to ten business days. Changes to your application can be reported by email or phone.
Q: When Can I Move In?
A: Once you have been determined eligible, the Housing Authority will work to get you into an available unit as soon as possible. There is a waiting list for all bedroom size units and you will be placed on this waiting list after your application has been processed and all information is gathered. Once there is availability, our office will notify you. The first vacant unit that becomes available when your name is next on the waiting list, will be the unit offered to you. Our office will then set up a tentative move-in date. Please be sure to keep all information up to date to make the housing application process successful.
