Punta Gorda Housing Authority, Florida


PGHA pre-application process for its Public Housing two-bedroom and three-bedroom Wait Lists IS NOW OPEN. Click here for the pre-application. Once opened, those wait lists will remain open until further notice. Pre-applications received will be date and time stamped for placement on the appropriate Public Housing Wait List.

PGHA has closed its Section 8 Wait list pre-application process. PGHA is no longer accepting pre-applications for the Section 8 Wait List. DO NOT CALL THE OFFICE TO ASK YOUR POSITION ON THE WAIT LIST. All pre-applications which were received between April 17-May 17 were considered received at exactly the same time. A lottery of all pre-applications received was conducted May 18 to compile a Wait List of 500 and to rank the first 500 households. If placed on the Wait List, you can check your position AFTER MAY 31 by calling 501-537-7741. You must provide your birthdate and social security number to access information. If you cannot access information at this number, your pre-application was not ranked in the first 500, and you were not placed on the wait list.

Those applicants placed on any PGHA Wait List are responsible for providing any changes in contact information when they occur, so they can be reached. An Applicant Change Form can be downloaded from this website and submitted to the office to report address, email or telephone number changes. Also, use the change form to report a new job. PGHA provides a working priority, so obtaining a job will move the household higher up the Wait List.

The Veranda Senior Housing Wait list is closed at this time.

Upcoming Board meetings are August 17, September 21, October 19 and November 16, 2017. Meetings are at 8:30 a.m. in PGHA's conference room at 340 Gulf Breeze Avenue, Punta Gorda.

The PGHA office will be closed for the July 4th holiday, and Labor Day September 4.
