Wait Times

Effective 4/15/2014

Estimated wait times for Public Housing programs:
  • 1-Bedroom Unit (Disabled Designations) = 12+ Months
  • 1-Bedroom Unit (Age 62 or older Designations) = 3-6 Months
  • 1-Bedroom Unit (Age 50-61, no disability) = 1-2 Years
  • 1-Bedroom Unit (No Designation) = Indefinite wait time
  • 2-Bedroom Unit = 2 Years
  • 3-Bedroom Unit = 2 Years
  • 4-Bedroom Unit = 2 Years
  • 5-Bedroom Unit = 2 Years
The above wait times are most accurate if city preference has been verified. Wait times are driven by vacancies and are estimated based on previous vacancy rates.
These estimated wait times are most accurate for applicants who provide documentation that they live, work, or go to school in the City of Madison.  Applicants will be notified by mail when the CDA is ready to screen their application.
Waiting list applicants are required to report changes, in writing, of mailing address, phone number, gross monthly income, and family composition.
