HUD Income Guidelines

First Step: Prescreen

Please call our offices to complete a prescreen. This is the first step in being evaluated for assistance.

Second Step: Evaluation and Notification

After submitting your application, it is reviewed by Resource Center staff. If you meet basic criteria and funding is available, you will be contacted to set up an appointment to see a case manager within 3 working days.  If you are not eligible, you will be contacted and, if appropriate,  information and a referral will be provided regarding other options you may want to consider.

Third Step (if applicable): Meet with a Case Manager

When you meet with a case manager, you will have the opportunity to discuss your situation. You will be required to bring in documentation.  They will assess your situation and help you develop a basic budget and a plan to help you remain stable in your housing. Based on your eligibility and ability to meet funding guidelines, you may qualify for financial assistance for rent, deposits, and/or utilities.

Fourth Step (if applicable): Receive Funding

If you meet with a case manager and funding is identified for you, payments will be made directly to your landlord and/or utility company.
