Most applicants are placed on the waiting list according to the date and time their completed application is received. Some applicants may qualify for selection preferences based on their individual circumstances and are placed on the waiting list ahead of those with no preferences. For these applicants, points are assigned based on each preference for which they qualify. They are then placed on the waiting list according to the number of points they have.
Applications are accepted by appointment only and dated at the time of the appointment. An interview is conducted when you come in for your appointment to determine if you are likely to qualify for housing assistance based on your current circumstances and if any specific preferences will apply.
