Initial Eligibility Process


Applicants seeking assistance will register to be placed on the waiting list (when the waiting list is open). To register for the waiting list applicants will complete a pre-application along with providing the required documents (valid social security card & certified birth record) for all household members applying. Household members 18 years of age and older must also provide a valid photo identification at the time of applicaiton.

Submitted applications will be reviewed for a preliminary assessment of eligibility prior to placement on the waiting list. Eligible applicants will be placed on the waiting list according to the date and time received; this agency does not give preferences. Placement on the waiting list does not guarantee eligibility; final determination will be made when the applicant is selected from the waiting list.

Applicants on the waiting list must keep their contact address updated with the Housing Authority; failure to do so will result in removal from the waiting list.


Waiting List Openings


Opening of the waiting list will be announced via public notice in the local newspaper and on this web site. CHA will not accept applications when the waiting list is closed nor give out applications.

Selection from the Waiting List


When assistance becomes available applicants will be selected from the waiting list in accordance with HUD regulations and Cleburne Housing policies. Applicants will be contacted by mail with instructions on what to do next to the complete the eligibility process. It is difficult to estimate the time that it will take for the applicant to reach the top of the waiting list. Currently the waiting period is approximately 1 - 2 years. Applicants will only be notified bymail when they reach the top of the waiting list. Cleburne Housing does not accept responsibility for mail delays or forwarding orders. Your name will be removed from the waiting list if you do not respond to scheduled appointments or requests for information. Applicants must attend a briefing prior to leasing up with the program.

Ineligibility


If an applicant is found ineligible (often due to over-income, negative background or non-compliance) they will be notified by mail.
