Public Housing Waitlist Now Open

Wednesday, August 3, 2011 - 4:54pm

EL PASO - The Housing Authority of El Paso has once again opened up their waiting list for public housing, but there's a catch.

The waitlist is for studio-sized apartments and open only to those who are elderly or disabled.

The waitlist is only open until August 31, 2011.

Below is more information from a press release:

Applications are only accepted at the main office located at 5300 East Paisano Drive, El Paso, TX 79905 or through HACEP's secure website at

In order to apply online, applicants must log on to and click on the "Online Application" button on the left-hand side. A separate window will open with bilingual instructions and a list of the required application information, which includes:

1. Name
2. Mailing Address
3. Dates of birth and social security numbers for each family member on the pre-application;
4. Gross annual income for the applying family;
5. Driver's license or State ID numbers for all family members who have one.

Once all of the fields are filled out, simply click the "Submit Application" button and the application will automatically upload to the wait list based on the day and time of submission. If any required fields are omitted or incorrectly filled out, a red message will appear informing applicants where the error has occurred. Applicants should print or record the confirmation ticket number for their records.

Due to limited resources and the sensitive personal information involved, applicants must access the Internet and fill out the online pre-application form on their own or enlist the help of a friend or family member. If applicants require a reasonable accommodation, they may contact Claudia Vargas at or (915) 849-3834 for assistance.
