Submission of a pre-application does not guarantee a family a spot on the waitlist. Due to the high level of interest in this open waiting list, LCHA will use a random lottery system to select 2,500 preliminary applications from all pre-applications submitted and those selected pre-applications will be placed on the waitlist.

Applicants should note there is never a fee to apply for rental assistance programs operated by the Lake County Housing Authority.
