What happens after I apply?

EHA will confirm your placement on the waitlist within 60 calendar days of pre-application. Placement on the waitlist is on a first-come, first-served basis. Eligibility will be determined when the applicant reaches the top of the list before being housed.

If I need reasonable accommodations or have questions about a specific property, who should I contact?

Requests for reasonable accommodations or questions should contact the following number:

  • Bakerview – 425-339-1003
  • Broadway Plaza – 425-303-1145
  • Grandview Homes – 425-303-1189

What if I’m on a different waiting list for another housing authority?

Each housing authority maintains its own waiting lists. You still need to apply for housing through EHA if you wish to be housed at an EHA property.

How long can I expect to be on this waiting list?

EHA is not able to provide a specific wait time, because this depends on the number of people who apply and turnover at the properties.

What will my rent be if I am accepted to live at one of these properties?

Your rent will be about 30% of your income. The project-based voucher will cover the difference between your share of the rent and the set rent for the unit.

Do you have any apartments available now?

No, but the waitlist differs for each property and our practice is to reopen the waiting list when the number of people drops below a certain amount. This helps to ensure we have enough households on the waiting list so that we are able to fill all vacancies quickly.

What if I need housing right now?

EHA does not offer emergency housing. Please call 2-1-1 or go to wa211.org to find available resources for housing and other basic needs.
