Applicants that need access to a computer may visit a branch of the Arlington Public Library, but they will have limited availability due to COVID-19.

Applicants must have an active email account to apply. A free email account can be obtained through an email provider of your choice.

To ensure the application process is fair and available to all, applications received will be randomly assigned a position on the waiting list. Time and date of application will not be used to establish an applicant’s position on the waiting list. Application status and information regarding placement on the waiting list will be available on-line after July 27, 2020.

The HCV program is a rental housing assistance program funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The program assists very low income persons, families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities to reside in safe, decent, rental housing they can afford.
