How to apply


Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher are two separate programs that are administered at our 204 Bluff City Hwy. Office.

Public Housing: Bristol Housing owns & operates 354 apartments in the City of Bristol, TN. Participants accept an apartment in one of our complexes, sign a dwelling lease with us, and pay 30% of their adjusted gross income for rent.

Housing Choice Voucher is a program where applicants find apartments or houses owned by private landlords willing to rent under the program. A portion of your rent will be paid by the Housing Authority based on current federal regulations. All rents are based on 30% of your annual gross income less applicable deductions. Be advised that Bristol Housing has stopped taking new applications for its Housing Choice Voucher/Section 8 Program effective June 30, 2015.
This action will remain in effect until further notice and is due to a backlog of applicants resulting in a one-year or longer waiting list.

**VETERANS** If you have served in the Armed Forces & are in need of housing assistance, please contact us @ (423)274-8150 x111. You may qualify for a VASH voucher which is not currently affected by the above action!

Your name will be placed on the waiting list based on the date and time of application. Once your application nears the top of the waiting list, you will be contacted by a staff member.

All applicants must successfully complete the screening process (criminal background check, landlord, credit report, etc.) in order to be placed in a PHA or Housing Choice Voucher unit.

Applications CANNOT be completed on a phone
