Please carefully review the cover page information of each application to determine which documents are required to be provided with your application. You may apply for multiple programs at the same time (i.e., you may be on both the Section 8 and Public Housing waiting lists).

Completed applications can be dropped off at:
Manhattan Housing Authority Administrative Office

Address Changes

It is very important to notify the Housing Authority in writing of any address changes that happen while you are on the waiting list. You will be notified by mail when your name is approaching the top of a waiting list. If any correspondence sent to you by the Housing Authority is returned to us by the Post Office, your name will be removed from the waiting list and you will have to reapply! If a change of address has occurred, please fill out and return a Change of Address Form (PDF).


Please call our office at 785-776-8588 if you have any questions about the application process and we will be happy to assist you!
