If you are interested in applying for housing, please read the Public Housing Pre-application Guide before you begin.
Once you apply, you may view or print your application after it has been submitted. This will also serve as your conformation that your application has been received or if you are currently on the waiting list. Changes to your application can be made by completing an Applicant Change of Information Form and submitting it to the housing authority.
The housing authority will no longer give out waiting list numbers. Once your preliminary application has been accepted, you will receive a letter within 60 – days that will contain your number on the waiting list and your estimated waiting time for assistance. PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE HOUSING AUTHORITY BEFORE THAT TIME.
Persons with disabilities who require a reasonable accommodation in completing an application may call the Michigan City Housing Authority to make special arrangements to complete their application. A Telecommunication Device for the Deaf (TDD) is available for the deaf. The TDD telephone number is (219) 873-2345. Language translation is available for persons with limited English proficiency (LEP) who wish to apply online. Applicants will be considered by local preference first which means that you must be a Michigan City resident. Applicants will be placed on the list by time, date and the appropriate bedroom size once the application is received.
