Poor rental history or a criminal record do not necessarily disqualify you from housing with Community Roots Housing. If you do not meet our rental housing policy standard, you may request an Individual Assessment (IA) of your criminal history, rental history, mortgage history or references. This IA will be conducted by a blind panel of staff to make a final determination of eligibility.

We screen for people who are listed on the sex offender registry for a conviction that occurred when the person was an adult. We also screen for people who have been convicted of the manufacture or production of methamphetamine on the premises of federally assisted housing.
We anticipate having printed floor plans available electronically or virtually at the time of application processing to help you determine if the apartment is right for you. Once you are confirmed for eligibility the site manager can coordinate a time for you to see the apartment virtually or in-person.
We cannot guarantee any particular unit, but we will do our best to accommodate requests. Any requests for special features or needs in the apartment that are related to a disability must be verified by a healthcare provider or other qualified source.
If you completed an application, the appeal process is outlined in your denial letter. Appeals must be submitted in writing. Unfortunately, we cannot hold an apartment while a decision is appealed.
Once you have a scheduled a move-in date, you should check with your current landlord about the appropriate time to give notice. Do not give notice before you have a scheduled move-in date.
