Waiting List

The BHC Waiting List applies to ALL units in our properties. NO specific unit/building requests will be granted. A household is only given two opportunities to accept or qualify for an available BHC unit. 

Our waiting list only has one preference for households that live or work in the city of Burbank, CA. 

Households on our waiting list are notified via telephone and mailed postcard when an apartment suitable for the household's income and size becomes available. This could take anywhere from a few months to a few years.


It is the applicant's responsibility to notify the BHC office if their income, address, phone number, or household composition changes while on the BHC Waiting List. Failure to update an application could result in removal from the waiting list. Proof of income, Burbank residency, or Burbank employment may be required.

Every October, BHC conducts a waiting list audit by mailing confirmation letters to all applicants. You must submit the bottom slip of the letter to our office by the given deadline. Failure to respond by the deadline indicates a disinterest in our Affordable Housing Program & will result in removal from the waiting list. 

A copy of the official Waiting List Policy is available by written request.
