Applications will not be accepted at the Housing Authority office.  Paper applications will not be available and applicants will not be able to apply in person.

If you are a person(s) with disabilities that limits your ability to access the online pre-application process, please contact the SJBPHA on Friday, January 27, 2023 between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at 985-359-9037 to request a reasonable accommodation.   Any request received after this date will not be considered.  If you have a hearing impairment you can contact TDD/TTY at 800-846-5277.

The SJBPHA will verify that the limitations imposed by the disability require the requested accommodation.  If SJBPHA determines the limitations imposed by the disability do not require a request for accommodation, your application will not be accepted.

 

* * * New on-line process for receiving applications * * *

SJBPHA’s on-line application is available in English and Spanish.

You may apply anytime day or night from a private computer or as part of an innovative partnership with St. John the Baptist Parish three (3) Library branches, applications may be made during regular business hours.  To complete the online application process you will need birth dates, social security numbers and income for everyone in the household.

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is a program designed to assist very low income families, the elderly and the disabled and help them afford decent safe and sanitary housing in the privately-owned rental market.  There are income qualifications that must be met in order to be considered for the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program, in which one’s income may be no greater than 50% of the Area Median Income.  Those who qualify for the program will pay approximately 30% of their adjusted monthly income for their share of a monthly rent and utilities and SJBPHA, which administers the federal program, provides funds for the remainder.

Following the application procedure, all applicants will be placed on the waiting list.  Placement on the waiting list does not indicate that the family is, in fact, eligible for assistance.  A final determination of eligibility will be made when the family is selected from the waiting list.
