You will need to bring the following information:

  1. Proof of all income for everyone to be listed on the application (working income, welfare, unemployment, social security, SSI, child support, retirement, etc.). A form needs to be picked up at the housing authority office if anyone is employed. No check stubs or checks are allowed for any income verification.
  2. Original certified birth certificates on every person to be listed on application.
  3. Original social security cards on every person to be listed on application.
  4. Attached forms have to be filled out completely.
  5. Criminal background checks will be ordered by the housing authority.


If you do not have all the above information, your application will not be taken that day.  Everyone listed on the application who is 18 years of age or older needs to come to the appointment.  We do ask that no children come to the interview.

The Covington Housing Authority may suspend taking applications at any time.
