Waitlists for Housing Choice Voucher and apartment communities managed by Home Forward have a central application process, and will always be listed here.

The detailed information on this page refers to waitlists for programs and properties owned and managed by Home Forward. Many Home Forward apartments listed on our apartment communities page are operated by independent property management companies. We often advertise their open waitlists but you should contact them directly for application instructions. 

If you are currently on a waitlist for Housing Choice Voucher or a Home Forward managed property, you can check your position by calling the waitlist hotline at 503-415-8000 or visiting the waitlist portal.

Attention residents

As some of you may have heard, on August 20th 2023 the Portland Water Bureau’s regular testing of water quality detected small amounts of the bacteria Cryptosporidium. Since learning of this, Home Forward staff has been in contact with the Portland Water Bureau.

We have been assured that healthy individuals can and should continue using water as normal.

If you are immunocompromised or are taking an immunosuppressive drug, you can kill any potential cryptosporidium bacteria by boiling your water for 1 minute before consuming.

  • If you are boiling the water to drink, let the water cool.
  • Iodine and Chlorine do not kill this bacteria, and to treat for potential bacteria you should boil the water.
  • If you have questions please reach out to your property manager or resident services coordinator.

Please visit the Center for Disease Control website to get additional information.
