Online Waiting List Pre-Application

Before you begin the application process, please have available:

  • social security numbers for all family members
  • names and dates of birth of all family members
  • income of all family members
  • paper and pen ready to write down your confirmation number

You must provide a valid mailing address on your online application as all CDA correspondence will be done through the mail. The U.S. Postal Service will not forward CDA mail! If any CDA mail is returned as undeliverable, you will be canceled from the wait list.

Make sure you have typed correctly all information. Submit only ONE application to the CDA. Applicants are not allowed to be listed as household members on multiple applications.

Tips for Submitting an On-Line Application:

  • Suggested Web browsers: Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari.
  • Provide a workable mailing address. Applications with "Homeless" as an address will be rejected.
  • Never pay anyone for a CDA subsidized housing application. There is never a fee to apply!
  • You will receive an error message if any information is left blank or information has been entered incorrectly.
  • You will receive a confirmation number after successfully submitting an on-line application. Write the number down and keep the confirmation number in a safe place.

If you experience difficulties with the on-line application system, please contact CDA Housing Operations at (608) 266-4675, use option #1.

Applications can be received online anytime during the wait list period. Applicants will receive a confirmation number to acknowledge successful transmission of the application. By submitting this pre-application information you are not guaranteed placement on any waiting list.
