AMHA opens its HCV waiting list on an as needed basis. When AMHA determines that the list is to be opened, public notice of the opening will be made in the local newspaper and through such other media as determined necessary to reach potentially eligible households not otherwise likely to apply.
The public notice will state that applications for the Housing Choice Voucher Program will be accepted, how they will be accepted and the time frame that the waiting list will be open. Since the demand for housing assistance often exceeds the limited resources available to HUD and the local housing agencies, long waiting periods are common.
Our Public Housing program is currently accepting applications for the 3 bedroom waiting list, 4 bedroom waiting lists and for Furl Williams Apartments. Applications can be picked up at 600 S. Main Street Lima, Ohio 45804, Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Below is a list of necessary documentation that is required to complete your application.
