What Happens after I apply?
Staff will determine if you meet the eligibility for the program(s) that you've applied for. Your name will be put on the appropriate waiting list(s) for the appropriate bedroom size.
We will request that you sign an authorization allowing us to verify your employment and/or student status. If you have been working at least 20 hours a week for 6 months or more or are a full-time student, you will receive preference points. Once verified, the working preference points will be applied to the FSS application. Periodically the applicant will be contacted to update information and confirm that the applicant is still interested.

What happens when I reach the top of the Waiting List?
