What is Low-Income Public Housing?
- Public housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly and persons with disabilities.
- HACLS owns and manages the properties and enforces the leases.
- There are 116 units in the public housing residential communities Duncan Estates and Lee Haven.
HACLS has 2 public subsidized housing properties totaling 116 apartments in the City of Lee’s Summit. HACLS owns and manages Lea Haven Apartments and Duncan Estates both are low-income public housing communities. Eligible applicants whose name comes to the top of the waiting list are offered an available unit. Residents pay about 30 percent of their monthly household income toward rent. HACLS provides the gas, water utilities and trash removal as part of the lease agreement. The properties are well maintained by a full-time professional maintenance staff.
How To Participate in Public Housing
Applications for the low-income public housing program are taken daily between the hours of 8:30 a.m and 4:30 p.m. at the Housing Authority of Lee’s Summit Missouri offices at 111 SE Grand Avenue, Lee’s Summit, Missouri 64063.
Once an application nears the top of the waiting list is when we pull your name to come in for a Full Application appointment to bring in all income verifications, assets if over $5,000, social security cards or verification of numbers, birth certificates or verification of dates of birth from a third party governmental agency, etc. and we will also sign paperwork to be able to run criminal backgrounds and landlord histories from your full application / pre-application.
We hope this helps you in understanding how the application process works prior to you putting an application in. We will work diligently to get to your application, but we cannot give a timeline of how long this process will take due to the number on the waiting list and availability of units.
