Applicants to the HCV Program must meet a number of requirements detailed in HMHA’s Administrative Plan including:
- Income eligibility
- Passing a criminal background check
- Previous behavior in assisted housing
Income eligibility is determined by comparing the family’s annual income (gross income) with the HUD established low-income limit for HMHA’s jurisdiction.
To qualify for the program, applicants must have an income at or below 50% of the area median income (AMI) based on their family size. Median income levels are published by HUD and vary by location.

How to Apply
When HMHA’s waiting list is OPEN, paper applications are available to fill out.
You can pick up a paper application at HMHA’s office located at 1800 N. Blanchard St, Suite 114 Findlay Ohio 45840. We will only accept completed paper applications during our normal business hours. Any questions or concerns please call 419–424–7848.
The Application Process
After the preliminary application is returned to HMHA, the information is entered into a computer system and your name is placed on a waiting list.
Our waiting list is electronically sorted by preferences and date and time of application. HMHA has a preference for veteran households and targeted funding for head of household, spouse and/or co-applicant with a disability.
Since the demand for housing assistance often exceeds the limited resources available to HUD and the local housing authority, a long waiting period could be possible.
When your name is pulled from the waiting list you will receive a letter for a scheduled appointment.
