In order to receive housing assistance, an applicant must meet all basic eligibility requirements. The applicant must be defined as a family and must be income-eligible to participate in the rental assistance programs; this also includes single persons. The Admissions & Occupancy Department determines who is eligible to receive assistance under each specific program.
Applicants who apply for housing assistance are placed on a waiting list for the program in which they apply. Tenant Selection is based on housing needs and local preferences. Applicants with no local preference are placed on the waiting list with a "no preference" status.
