Is there any way I can apply to a closed waiting list?

Answer

No, you may not apply to a closed waiting list, under any circumstances.

These are not emergency housing programs, so even an emergency housing issue would not allow you to apply.

You must wait until the waiting list you are interested in reopens, or apply to a nearby open waiting list.
