How to Apply

To apply: Complete a Pre-Application to be added to the waiting list(s). 


Pre-applications are available for pick-up at the Housing Authority Office located at 208 Unity Street Bellingham, WA 98225.  Our lobby is open Monday through Thursday from 9:30am-12:00pm and 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Please note, applicants will not be added to any waiting lists that are not open at the time a pre-application is received by BHA and incomplete pre-applications will not be accepted.   

Wait times vary by program, and a current list of programs that are accepting pre-applications along with estimated wait times can be found in the BHA lobby, or by clicking Waiting Lists Status

When an applicant name comes to the top of the waiting list, BHA will contact them by mail with instructions and deadlines for submitting a full application packet.  Any applications received after the applicable deadline will not be assessed for eligibility, and all mail returned by the Post Office will result in the applicant’s name being removed from the waiting list without further notification.
