What’s the approval process like?

During the application process, the Fayetteville Housing Authority will collect information on family income, assets, and family composition. The FHA will verify this information with other local agencies, your employer and bank, and will use the information to determine program eligibility and the amount of the housing assistance payment.

If the FHA determines that your family qualifies, the FHA will put your name on a waiting list. Once your name is reached on the waiting list, the FHA will contact you.
