We are excited to announce that applications for housing at Siler Yard are now LIVE! We will begin accepting hard copy applications only, on January 15, 2021. Applications received prior to January 15 at 8 am, or in electronic format will not be considered.
The application process for housing at Siler Yard will occur in three steps:
- Application- An application will need to be completed by a prospective resident. Applicants can download the application at https://sileryard.org/apply/. Completed applications must be submitted in hardcopy no earlier than January 15. Please DO NOT submit applications before this date.
- Income Certification and Background Check- If the applicant preliminarily qualifies for housing and a unit they desire to rent is available, Siler Yard’s property management company, JL Gray Property Management, will contact the applicant and require the applicant to pay a $30 application fee. JL Gray will formally certify the applicant’s income and run a standard background check.
- Artist Interview Committee Interview- Once the applicant’s income has been certified and they pass a standard background check, they will be contacted by the Siler Yard Management team and asked to schedule an interview with the Artist Interview Committee (AIC). In the interview, applicants will be asked a series of questions on their commitment to their artistic practice, their demonstrated need for affordable studio space, and their desire to be part of the creative community at Siler Yard: A+CC. The AIC will include a member of the Siler Yard Management team, and two members from the local creative community.
