  • Duplicate pre-application forms will be rejected, including the original form that it was copied from.
  • All pre-applications will be date and time stamped and initialed by a management representative upon receipt. This does not determine the ranking on the Waiting list. Wait list ranking will be determined by a lottery system using a randomizing software.
  • All pre-applications will be reviewed for completeness and basic applicant eligibility. If an applicant does not meet basic eligibility requirements for the program, the pre-application will be rejected, and s/he will be sent a denial letter.
  • Applicants meeting eligibility requirements will stay on the waiting list in the order as determined by the randomizing software.
  • All applicants placed on the waiting list will receive a confirmation letter. Do not contact the Mission Plaza Apartments Office.
  • All information provided in the pre-application will be verified at the time of admission. False information will result in rejection. 
  • Placement on the waiting list is not a guarantee of acceptance or an offer for housing assistance. Further qualifying and screening will be conducted when an applicant approaches the top of the list.

Federal Preferences – In Accordance with HUD Regulations:

  • Preference will be given to person or persons approved for the Waiting List if they are:  Displaced by government action OR living in a dwelling that has been extensively damaged or destroyed as a result of a presidentially declared disaster (as defined in Federal Disaster Relief laws).
  • HUD requires that 40% of the assisted apartments that become available in each fiscal year be leased to applicants whose income does not exceed 30% of the area median income (“extremely low-income”) at the time of admission.  This may result in some applicants whose income exceeds the 30% median income to be skipped in favor of those who meet the extremely low-income until the target is met.

Note: No pre-applications will be distributed other than in the manner listed above.
