order to live in the residences operated by the Lafayette Housing
Authority (LHA), you must complete an application and provide all of
the requested verification items.
All applicants will be required to provide social security cards and
birth certificates for all household members. Income
verifications for wages, social security, TANF, child support, pension,
etc. are required for all household income. All assets, such as
checking and savings accounts, investments, real estate, etc., will

criminal history of household members.
LHA has adopted a residency preference that provides applicants who
live or work in Macon County, Tennessee a priority over
nonresidents. Preferences claimed by applicants must be verified.
Once the initial online application is completed, you will be contacted
