Rent Geared to Income

Housing Access Peterborough (HAP) is the coordinated access program for subsidized (rent-geared-to-income) housing in Peterborough City and County.  You can pick up an application form from the HAP office, and/or at our office. Applications for subsidized (rent-geared-to-income) housing are now available online here.

When you apply, your name will be added to the waiting list for the housing units you have selected on your application. Your place on the waiting list is based on the date HAP receives your application. Wait times for subsidized housing vary based on the unit size and length of the waiting list. Estimated wait times are available on their website.

If you are or have experienced abuse in the past three months or you are currently fleeing abuse, you can apply and request for Special Priority Placement (SPP) by completing HAP’s special priority due to abuse form.  For more information about how to apply for SPP, please see the How to Apply section of the HAP website or contact HAP directly.

It is very important that you call HAP if your address changes.  HAP mails update forms every 12 months to people on the waiting list. If this update form is not returned, you will be removed from the waiting list. If you have any questions about your application or require assistance filling out your application, please contact HAP directly at 705-742-0439.
