Waiting List Hotline

The Faribault HRA has recently established a Hotline number for you to call and leave a message to find out where you currently are on the Waiting List. Please call (507) 333-0357 and, when prompted, please clearly state your name, address and telephone number, including the spelling of your name. We will attempt to return all phone calls no later than the following business day. We cannot give specific waiting times, but they generally range from 6 months to over 2 years depending on the bedroom size needed, time and date of the application and estimated household income.
