Applications will be considered on a first come, first served basis and can be submitted at the El Paso Community Foundation during regular business hours, located at 333 North Oregon Street in Downtown El Paso.

Applicants must submit "a completed and signed rental application (including the signed page stating whether or not your household meets the artist preference)," and "an application fee of $13 per adult in your household in a money order or cashier's check made payable to Artspace El Paso Lofts," according to a press release.

According to the Artspace website, "Each loft has a preference for practicing artists, and applicants meeting the established household income and background qualifications will meet with an artist selection committee to talk about their body of work and commitment to the arts."

The lofts, scheduled to open in November, will include 51 affordable live/work units targeted towards artists. Units will be available in one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations, depending on family size.

Artspace El Paso Lofts are located at the corner of Oregon Street and Missouri Avenue.
