Qualification by APCHA is required for all rentals and sales units in the APCHA inventory prior to occupancy by any eligible applicant.
Basic Eligibility Requirements
- Work full-time (at least 1,500 hours per calendar year) in Pitkin County
- Use the APCHA unit as a primary residence (at least nine months per year)
- Own NO other developed residential property within the Ownership Exclusion Zone (OEZ)
A qualification packet and supporting documentation are needed to verify employment/work history, household size, income and assets, and other necessary information.
APCHA does not accept Rental Qualification packets until a unit has been offered to the eligible applicant.
APCHA accepts Ownership Qualification Packets whenever an eligible applicant wants to enter the ownership lottery or purchase an RO unit (PDF).
