User Name Instructions

A User Name is a unique name that you define on your online application for this property. The User Name will automatically default to your email address. It should be changed to a new unique User Name if you are entering multiple online applications for many individuals, or if you plan to apply for other MDHA properties. Here are some User Name examples:

  • User Name Example 1:

I’m an individual and I want to be on the J Henry Hale Apartments waiting list. I can use my email address for my User Name, but I can also define my User Name to be a unique name that I can use exclusively for this property. Example: My name is Jane Doe and I’m applying for the J Henry Hale Apartments waiting list. So, I’ve decided to make my User Name be jdoeJhh20. This unique User Name will always be associated with my J Henry Hale Apartments Waiting List online application created on 12/15/2020.

  • User Name Example 2:

I’m a social worker and I’m entering many online applications for my clients who do not have an email address or access to a computer. I can enter my email address for each online application, but I must create a unique User Name for each online application that I enter. Refer to the previous example if your client plans to apply at other MDHA properties.
