A family’s rent is calculated based upon family size and family income. When an applicant first apples for assistance, the staff make an initial determination of preliminary eligibility or ineligibility. This requires full-verification of the family’s income and other eligibility documents. The family is then placed on the waiting list for the house size best suited for them. As the family moves up on the waiting list and reaches a point where they are at the top of the list and there is a unit available that meets their respective housing need, then final eligibility is determined.
