Housing Access Peterborough manages the centralized waiting list for subsidized housing in the City and County of Peterborough. Subsidized housing, or Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI) rental units, are funded by government programs and allow eligible tenants to pay reduced rental rates based on their household’s annual income.

We do this by maintaining the waiting list of people interested in Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI) housing, and providing housing opportunities to people when they reach the top of that list. The waiting list is processed in chronological order, and calls are made to applicants as vacancies arise.

The “one stop shopping” allows applicants to apply to more than one housing provider by completing only one application form for Rent-Geared-to-Income (RGI) assistance.   The staff of Housing Access Peterborough is pleased to assist applicants in making selections for “area of preference” and will review housing mandates and eligibility criteria with applicants upon request.

Housing Access Peterborough aspires to provide the coordinated access services for rent-geared-to-income housing and related housing programs in Peterborough City and County in a manner that will foster the well being of applicants with respect to housing including cooperation and referrals with related service agencies and housing providers.

We invite you to learn more about us, learn more about our participating housing providers and discover resources in the community that are available.
