EL PASO — Applications for public housing for individuals 62 years or older or with disabilities will be accepted beginning Monday through July 31 through the HACEP website.
These housing units feature a studio that is suitable for single-person families. The waitlist will remain open only during the month of July 2012, and applications are only accepted through HACEP’s website at www.hacep.org .
In order to apply online, applicants must log on to www.hacep.org  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:
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.
Applicants may apply for housing using any computer that is connected to the Internet, including the computers available at the El Paso Public Library System and the VOLAR Center for Independent Living located at 1220 Golden Key Circle.
