CMHA is taking a completely innovative and new direction with its waiting list process:
- CMHA will be accepting pre-applications on a rolling basis and the waiting list itself will not close.
- A pre-application is valid for 18 months. If it expires, the applicant may reapply immediately to stay in the selection pool.
- Applicants will also be able to access a web-based system to update their contact information at any time.
- The pre-application will be made available on the CMHA website, though it has not yet been released.
The HCVP provides rental subsidy to low-income families through vouchers, which are utilized with private landlords throughout Cuyahoga County. CMHA is currently subsidizing approximately 15,000 families who enjoy the flexibility of a voucher in locating housing that addresses their family’s particular needs. CMHA will be hosting a Zoom Community Partner Meeting next week to discuss the wait list opening. Additional information and instruction about the process will be forthcoming.
