APPLICATION PROCESS (EFFECTIVE JANUARY 25, 2016 5:00PM CST, THE WAITING LIST WAS CLOSED. NO FURTHER APPLICATIONS ARE BEING ACCEPTED. IN RECEIPT OF 14,500 APPLICATIONS WE RANDOMLY SELECTED 2,000 AND WE ARE UNABLE TO PREDICT WHEN THE LIST WILL OPEN AGAIN. )
FOR FAMILIES OR INDIVIDUALS THAT SUBMITTED APPLICATIONS ON JANUARY 25, 2016:
Please understand that you have submitted a preliminary application for housing only, and it does not guarantee assistance. A lottery was conducted on all applications received and only 2,000 applications were selected to go on the waiting list. All other applicants must reapply once the list opens again. A final determination of eligibility for active applications will be made when the application reaches the front of the waiting list, and subject to the eligibility criteria AT THAT TIME. Submission of your application served as acknowledgement and release for Mesquite Housing to perform all preliminary screening inquiries of income, prior housing assistance and criminal backgrounds. If you do not pass the preliminary eligibility screening, you will be notified in writing and will have the opportunity to request a review.
APPLICANTS MUST REPORT ALL ADDRESS CHANGES TO THE HOUSING OFFICE, IN WRITING. SEE THE LINK NAMED "LOCATION AND HOURS" ON OUR SITE FOR THAT CONTACT INFORMATION. Notices are mailed to all applicants reaching the front of the waiting list, so a valid address is imperative. These notices are time sensitive, so applicants that do not respond will be assumed to have moved or are no longer interested. No response to the notice, for whatever reason, will prompt application to be filed inactive without further notice.
