Families who wish to apply for any of the Authority’s programs must complete an online application. Please note that you MUST have a valid Social Security number AND be age 18 or older to complete an application. The application process involves two phases. The first is the “initial” application for assistance, which results in the family’s placement on the waiting list. The second phase is the “final determination of eligibility,” which occurs when the family reaches the top of the waiting list. At that time, each applicant gets interviewed, and the Authority verifies all eligibility factors. Applications may be submitted online through our website whenever the waiting list is open.
