Eligibility

During the eligibility screening process, Walla Walla Housing Authority will collect information regarding household composition, income and assets. This information is verified through local agencies, employers, financial institutes, and other applicable entities. Information collected is used to determine program eligibility and the amount of rent to be paid or the amount of the rental assistance payment.

Eligibility is determined by Walla Walla Housing Authority based on the total gross annual income, family size, and is limited to U.S. Citizens and specified categories of non-citizens.
