Socorro has the “Home Sweet Home” feeling you’ve been looking for – everyone from young families to retired couples find that it is an ideal place to call home.

The application must be completely filled-out, signed and returned to the Housing Authority with copies of all household members’ Birth Certificates, Social Security cards, and proof of any and all income. Social Security recipients must provide a copy of award letters.

This places the applicant on the waiting list.
