Fall River Housing Authority (FRHA) is now accepting online applications for federal public housing through the MRI WaitListCheck portal.
Conversion to this online platform will make the traditional paper-based process obsolete. To that end, FRHA has begun to phase-out the Pre-application for Federal Public Housing form and will no longer accept applications in paper or PDF file format after October 31, 2020. [Exception: Persons with disabilities may request assistance with or special modifications to the application process to accommodate a disability-related need].
FRHA manages three (3) waiting lists for federal public housing: Family, Mixed Populations, and Elderly Only:
Unit Designation: General Occupancy
Who can apply? Adults (age 18+) either with or without youth (ages 0-17)
Unit sizes: 1, 2, 3, 4- and 5-bedroom units
(2) MIXED POPULATIONS
Unit Designation: Elderly and Disabled [Households without Youth]
Who can apply? Elderly (ages 62+); Disabled (ages 18+); and Near Elderly (ages 50-61)
Unit sizes: Studio apartments, 1-bedroom units
(3) ELDERLY ONLY
Unit Designation: Elderly Only
Who can apply? Elderly (ages 62+) and Near Elderly (ages 50-61)
Unit sizes: 1- and 2-bedroom units
To apply for federal public housing online, you must begin by registering for an MRI WaitListCheck account. It does not cost anything to apply, but a valid email address is required.
You will only be able to apply for one (1) waiting list at a time. Do not apply for a waiting list unless your household composition meets the threshold criteria for age and/or disability status. Click the link below to get started.
