Am I still eligible if I submit more than one application?


If you submit more than one application, you may or may not be eligible for assistance, based on the policy of the housing authority or apartment community you applied through.

In some cases, duplicate applications for the same household would disqualify that household of being placed on the waiting list. In other situations, the household would not be disqualified, but the duplicate applications would be terminated.

Public notices often state what the policy is if multiple applications are submitted.

If a duplicate application for the same household was submitted by mistake, or because of confusion, contact the housing office immediately to explain what happened.
