St. Paul PHA Multifamily Housing Waiting List Opening

The St. Paul Public Housing Agency (St. Paul PHA) will begin accepting online applications for Multifamily Housing apartments with 0-5 bedrooms beginning on March 1, 2023 and continuing until further notice. 

The Multifamily Housing program provides apartments with reduced rent (based on income) to households with low incomes. 

All applications received between 8:00 AM on March 1 and 11:59 PM on March 7 will be randomly sorted (like a lottery), so there is no advantage to applying on the first day. Applications received after March 7, 2023 will be sorted by the date and time received.
