Applying for an Apartment
A-Companies has more than 2,000 rental apartments, of which about 350 apartments are vacated for rent each year. Most of these are affordable ARA rental homes. The selection of residents for these apartments takes into account the applicant’s housing needs, and their income and assets. The selection follows the instructions of the Housing Selection Guide of the Housing Finance and Development Center. Resident selection is made continuously, as housing becomes vacant, and residents selected for vacant housing are the applicants, who are most in need of housing, based on the above criteria. There are no similar restrictions in non-subsidized housing.
You can find out about all A-Companies properties on our residential apartments page. On the page of each item, you will find information on whether the item is restricted or non-restricted.
A-Companies’ rental apartments are always applied for in writing. The application is done either by filling out an electronic form or a paper form, which you can print out from the link below, or you can get one from the A-Companies’ office.
