PUBLIC HOUSING WAIT LIST NOW OPEN
The Lexington Housing Authority (LHA) is now accepting applications ONLY for two (2), three (3) and four (4) bedroom units located at some of its Public Housing Self-Sufficiency and General Public Housing sites. In addition to the general requirements for all General Public Housing programs, the Self-Sufficiency program requires that the head-of-household or spouse/co-head-of-household must demonstrate he/she has been working for at least 37.5 hours per week for Self-Sufficiency I, or 20 hours per week for Self Sufficiency II. The work requirement is demonstrated by verification of continuous (uninterrupted) employment over the 3 months prior to the eligibility certification or signing a lease for a Self-Sufficiency site.*
