Welcome to the Housing Authority of the City of La Crosse (LHA) Wait List Application Page

***A valid email address will be required to complete the pre-application process.*** 

Before you begin the pre-application process, please have the following available for each member of your household:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Social Security Number or Alien Registration Number (will also need to present documentation at a later time)
  • Monthly income for the household (including but not limited to wage income, benefit income, disability benefits, child support, etc.).
  • A valid address, email, and phone number to which staff can send correspondence.
  • Paper and pen to write down your user name, password and confirmation number.
Make sure you have typed all information correctly. Submission of a pre-application does not guarantee placement on the waiting list. Only one pre-application per applicant will be accepted. Duplicate applications will be disqualified.

Placement on a waiting list does not indicate that the family is, in fact, eligible for assistance. A final determination will be made when the family is selected from the wait list.

There are no fees associated with applying for any LHA program. Any website requesting a fee in order to apply is not legitimate and not related to the Housing Authority of the City of La Crosse.

It remains the applicant's responsibility to notify LHA, in writing, of any updates to application.  Updates include, but not limited to: change of income, household size, address, phone number or e-mail address.  If you have any changes or updates, you must notify the Housing Authority in writing. Please email changes to LHAWaitlist@lacrossehousing.org or mail to La Crosse Housing Authority, P.O. Box 1053, La Crosse, WI 54602-1053.
