Welcome to the Lexington Nebraska Housing Authority

Welcome to our new Softwhear Yardi and RentCafe. The RentCafe Portal is your new way to access your information to apply for assistance, pay your rent, submit changes to your income, assets, or deductions, and submit a work order. You will also be able to process your annual recertification in this portal. The RentCafe is property-specific, which means if you live in an Eastlawn apartment you will use the Eastlawn RentCafe. If you live at Legend Oaks I or Legend Oaks II you will need to use the correct Rent Cafe Portal. If you have a Housing Choice Voucher then you will also have a separate HCV Rent Cafe registration. So look for your registration email and or letter to come in the mail.
