Our Public Housing Application will be completely online in the near future.  Until then, applications can be picked up at the Wilkes-Barre Housing Authority’s main office located at 50 Lincoln Plaza, Wilkes-Barre, PA.  

Public Housing is limited to low-income families and individuals. The Wilkes-Barre Housing Authority (WBHA) determines your eligibility based on:

  1. Annual gross income;
  2. Whether you qualify as elderly, a person with a disability, or as a family under general occupancy; and
  3. U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status.

If you are eligible, the WBHA will check your rental history, references, and other factors to make sure you and your family will be good tenants. The WBHA will deny admission to any applicant whose habits and practices may be expected to have a detrimental effect on other tenants or on the project’s environment.

Waiting List Coming Soon!
