If I am already in an affordable housing program, can I apply to another?


Yes, you can apply to any affordable housing program, even if you are currently receiving rental assistance by another program.

Once your name reaches the top of the waiting list, you must make a decision on whether to accept the new program, or stay on the program you are currently on. You may not receive rental assistance by two HUD programs at the same time.
