Reading Housing Authority (RHA) will open the Public Housing Waiting List on Tuesday, February 22, 2022, for the following categories only: 4BR units located in Glenside and Oakbrook Homes and 5BR units located in Oakbrook Homes only.

Applicant families must qualify for the bedroom size (4BR and 5BR units) based upon an occupancy standard of 1 bedroom per 2 persons, with limited exceptions. (Applications that do not comply with these standards may prevent the application from being considered.)

RHA utilizes a 1-offer policy, which means that eligible individuals are not able to select a development but will be offered the first unit for which they meet the criteria.

Beginning February 22, APPLICANTS MAY ONLY APPLY ONLINE at Electronic applications must be received by midnight on Friday, February 25.

Preferences will be given to individuals and families who live in the City of Reading and to families of which a household member is a service member or veteran who meets the standards set in accordance with PA Law P.L. 2903, No. 188.

RHA reserves the right to apply a lottery-based selection process for applications if the number of applications received exceeds more than 12 months of predicted unit availability; therefore, all applicants may not be placed upon a waiting list.

Applicants must qualify according to the RHA Admissions & Continued Occupancy Policy.
