PUBLIC NOTICE FOR THE OPENING AND CLOSING OF THE WAITING LIST

 ONLY online pre-applications will be accepted

 3 and 4 Bedroom Apartments for Families

THE HOUSING AUTHORITY OF POMPANO BEACH (HAPB) WILL BE ACCEPTING ONLINE APPLICATIONS FOR THE BEN TURNER RIDGE PUBLIC HOUSING UNITS.  Preliminary applications must be completed online beginning July 28th, 2017 at 12:01 a.m. and will close at 11:59 p.m. on July 28th, 2017.  A computer lottery process will randomly select 100 pre-applications.  The 100 randomly selected pre-applications will be added to a waiting list for BEN TURNER RIDGE APARTMENTS.  

PRE-APPLICATION INFORMATION:  Pre-applications will only be available for completion online at the website:  https://pompano.myhousing.com.  If you do not have computer access at home, you may go to a public library or any other place where computers are available to access the website to complete the application.  Pre-applications will only be accepted when completed and submitted online.  The following information is needed in order to successfully submit the pre-application: Names, social security numbers, birthdates and income information for everyone in the household. You will receive a confirmation number upon completion of your pre-application.

Submission of a pre-application does not guarantee placement on the waiting list.  Due to the high level of interest in the public housing program, the HAPB will use a lottery system to randomly select 100 names from all pre-applications submitted and those selected pre-applications will be placed on the wait list.  The time of receipt of the pre-application during the wait list opening has no bearing on whether an application will be selected.  There is no advantage to applying immediately after the wait list opens as the lottery numbers will be randomly generated after the pre-application period has closed.  Families will be listed on the wait list in the order determined by their selection in the lottery.  Once the waiting list has been defined and families selected, we will apply a local preference, if applicable.

There are two (2) Local Preferences for selection of eligible families:  Working Preference is given to families where the head of household, spouse, or co-head is working (30 hours weekly), attending school or a training program; or in which the head, spouse or co-head is 62 or older; or a person with a disability.  Resident Preference applies if applicant lives or works in the City of Pompano Beach.

  • No telephone calls, walk-ins, mail-ins or drop-off pre-applications will be accepted. 
  • Only one pre-application per household will be considered throughout the entire process.  Any family that submits more than one pre-application will have all pre-applications disqualified.

Please do not call the HAPB for updates.  Starting September 30th, 2017, you can check the status of your pre-application by visiting our website at www.hapb.org.  Please keep your confirmation number for reference.  Only families selected will receive notification from the HAPB by September 30, 2017.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you have a disability which limits your ability to access the process and you require assistance to complete the pre-application, email your request to pompanoha@hapb.org or write your request to Ben Turner Ridge Apartments, 321 West Atlantic Boulevard, Pompano Beach, FL 33060. Requests must be received by July 20, 2017, at 3:00pm and must include your contact information and the type of assistance you request.
