Affordable rentals are currently in short supply on Bainbridge Island. HRB maintains waiting lists for 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments and encourages eligible households to apply. When we have a vacancy in any of our rental housing units, we fill that vacancy from the waiting list.

To be placed on the waiting list, please complete and submit the rental wait list application. Our staff will review your application and if you meet eligibility requirements, you will be added to the waiting list.
