Frequently Asked Questions For Applicants
1. How do I check the status of my application? How do I know if I am on the waiting list?
You can check the status of your pre-application online at www.waitlistcheck.com. UHA cannot respond to requests for waiting list status or tell you your position on the waiting list.
To check your status, log in to www.waitlistcheck.com using the head of householdís Social Security number and 4-digit year of birth. The system will show the status of any application you have submitted for UHA's Public Housing or Section 8 waiting list.
If the system does not display any results, it means that UHA has not received a pre-application from you, and perhaps you applied with another housing authority. Each housing authority maintains its own waiting list.
2. I am on the waiting list. How can I update my address or telephone number?
3. How long will it be before I receive assistance? How long is the waiting list?
For applicants currently living in Upland, the wait can be more than five (5) years from the date of your application. For applicants residing outside of Upland the waiting period is much longer. Your income level and the amount of federal funding available to UHA can also have an impact on the wait time. Unfortunately, UHA cannot tell you when your application will reach the top of the waiting list.
4. Is there any reason why my application would be taken off the waiting list?
Your application will stay on the waiting list until your name reaches the top of the waiting list OR your application is canceled.
Your application may be canceled if:
If your application is canceled UHA will send a written notice to the address we have on file for you.
5. What happens once Iím on the waiting list? Do I need to do anything?
Make sure your contact information is up to date. If your address, telephone number, email address, or the number of persons in your household changes, you must notify UHA within fifteen (15) days of the change by completing the Change of Contact or Other Information form. If you do not complete the form within fifteen (15) days of the change, your application may be canceled.
6. Does UHA give priority to anyone on the waiting list?
Housing authorities are required to assist extremely low-income families and very low-income families before other families. Housing authorities are also permitted to establish preferences for persons on their waiting list. The only preferences UHA allows are for:
Families that are extremely low-income or very low-income and meet one or both of these preferences are generally assisted before other families on the waiting list.
7. Is there anything else I should do while I am on the waiting list?
When your name reaches the top of the waiting list, UHA will need to verify your household income and other information. You will need to provide the originals of the following documents for all household members, and you should begin gathering them immediately:
If you are missing any of these documents, you should start gathering them immediately. If you are not able to provide all of these documents when your name reaches the top of the waiting list and you are called to receive assistance, you may be denied assistance.
8. If I already applied with another Housing Authority will I be on UHAís waiting list?
No. Each Housing Authority has its own waiting list. You must submit a separate application to each Housing Authority you want to be on the waiting list for.
