The Hinesville Housing Authority is committed to being the premier provider of affordable housing and creator of sustainable communities for people of all incomes and backgrounds. We perform the following checks on all applicants who submit an application for housing.

Rental History Background Check

You must provide addresses and telephone numbers for the past two landlords from whom you rented. If you cannot do so, we will require three character reference letters. At least one letter must be from a reputable agency or other agencies, such as your employer, a church, social worker, doctor, business contact, etc.

Credit Check

We will perform a credit check on all applicants. Each credit check will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Criminal Background

A criminal background check will be performed on each applicant over the age of 18 to determine if there is a history of violent crime or drug activity.

For detailed information on our tenant selection process, please view the Tenant Selection Plan. This plan was created to make sure everyone has a fair chance to receive housing assistance from the Hinesville Housing Authority.
