Apply for Rental Housing - General Information

Rental Housing Registration Process


Welcome to the FCRHA Online Housing Application Center. Through this site you may register for the Registration list for affordable housing assistance. Please note that due to the demand for housing assistance there are many other families already waiting for assistance – this is not Emergency Housing. However, in some cases (primarily non-federal programs), the wait for housing is shorter.

Programs offered by the FCRHA include: Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Program, Public Housing and Fairfax County Rental Program. Before continuing with the registration process, please note the following:

Accurate, complete information is required:
