Renter's Guide: Rental Assistance
Denver Multifamily HUB

This guide will assist you in applying for and renting a rental-assisted apartment. Deposits and Total Tenant Payments (TTP) will vary based on the resident/family annual income. HUD has several different types of rental assistance programs so some of the information below may vary.

Step 1 - Application

You will be required to complete an application form, either a hard copy or electronically. There are no application, administrative, or processing fees. All adult applicants must sign an Authorization Release Information Form.

Required Information: The following information must be provided for each resident or family member who will reside in the apartment:

  • Full Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Social Security Number for Residents six (6) years or older
  • Driver License
    (Or other govt.-issued photo ID)
  • Current Address
  • Previous Address
    (Including landlord's name number)
  • Current Employer
  • Previous Employer
  • Pets
  • Automobiles
  • Banking Information
  • Emergency Contact
  • Specific Questions Asked: Including, but not limited to bankruptcy; felony, misdemeanor, or sex crime convictions; and terrorism-related offenses.

    Step 2 - Waiting List

    A waiting list for completed applications is maintained by requested apartment size on a first-come-first-served basis. In turn, the manager will process the application; verify income; and check criminal records, credit, and landlord references. Upon satisfactory completion, you will be notified. Just prior to move-in, you will meet with the manager to discuss occupancy requirements, TTP, rental rate (30% gross-adjusted income), and complete additional forms.

    Step 3 - Move-In

    At move-in you will be required to executive a lease, usually a one year term, and pay your security deposit and pet deposit, if applicable. A unit inspection will be conducted, the work order process discussed, keys issued, and parking space assigned, if applicable.

    Note: Pets are normally only allowed at elderly complexes. Students are not allowed to live in assisted housing unless they meet certain requirements.
