Below, listed under “Pre-App” is our Application Process letter. The first two pages of this letter will explain the process and give a list of everything that you will need to bring to the office when you come in for your interview. The last page MUST be signed before a Notary Public by every member of the household that is 18 years and older.

Once you have all of these required documents, please click on “Application”. There you will find 3 documents:

Application for Housing
Declaration of Citizenship

Please print all of these documents and fill them out completely. If you do not have a printer, you may call (518) 436-0230, Ext. 4 and request that the application forms be sent to you.

Once you have completed all of the forms and documents necessary to apply, please call the office to set up an appointment to finish the process with our staff at our 85 Aiken Avenue office.

Rensselaer Housing Authority only takes applications the second and third week of the month.

Due to the pandemic, RHA will be accepting all applications by mail. Your interview will be conducted by telephone. Please be sure to give us your up-to-date phone number.

During this time we will accept photocopies of all birth certificates and social security cards with your mailed in application. However, upon lease-up, you will be required to provide all original documents.

Please mail all application paperwork to:
