Q: Can I be on more than one waiting list at a time?
Q: How will I know when my name comes up on the waiting list?
A: Once you are placed on a waiting list you will be given an approximate wait time relevant to the program you are applying for. This will give you some idea about when you should be contacted for housing. You will be contacted by mail when your name comes to the top of the waiting list and the program you applied for has openings. It is your responsibility to keep an up to date address with the Fayetteville Housing Authority.
Q: How do I update my contact information?
