The Wait List is CLOSED.

We have reached our maximum number of 1,500 pre-applications. The DuPage Housing Authority wait list was CLOSED within minutes of opening.  At the time the list closed there were several thousand applicants in the process of completing their information prior to selecting the “submit” button.  However, they were able to complete their user account, and can use that moving forward for applying to other wait lists that we may open.

We realize this may have been frustrating for someone who was in the midst of applying, but the applications were date/time stamped and the first 1500 received by the system will be placed on the Wait List. A confirmation email will be sent sometime in the month of July for the first 1,500 applicants. Once you receive an email confirming you are on the DHA Wait List, you may use the username and password that was created to submit the information to log in and check your status on the Wait List.

Paper applications were NOT available. It was an online application only.



Please note that if you had selected preferences on the Wait List, you must provide proof of those preference within 60 days of the confirmation email. For more information about Local Preferences CLICK HERE



No date has been determined as to when the list will open again. When the DHA opens for applications again, we will post a public notice on our website, local papers and send notices to local agencies and municipalities notifying them of the date.



Please use the username and password you created at the time of applying to access your account information from our Applicant Housing Café Portal.
