Waiting List Management
Anyone who wishes to be admitted to the property or to be placed on the property's Waiting List must complete an application. The application must include a signature certifying the accuracy and completeness of information provided. If the applicant is placed on the property's Waiting List, the list will note the name of the applicant, the date and time of application, the type of income, the size of unit desired, and any other pertinent information.
Selecting Names from the Waiting List.
The property will select names from the waiting list in chronological order to fill vacancies unless an extremely low-income applicant is needed to achieve income-targeting requirements in this Section 8 property, and the next applicant on the waiting list has income above the extremely low-income limit. In such a case, a notation will be made on the waiting list to indicate why this applicant was skipped for an extremely low-income applicant.

Maintaining the Waiting List
In order to maintain a balanced application pool, the property may, at its discretion, restrict application taking, suspend application taking, and close waiting lists in whole or in part. Decisions about closing the waiting list will be based on the number of applications available, and the ability of the property to house an applicant within a reasonable period of time. Closing the waiting lists, restricting intake, or opening the waiting lists will be publicly announced via the : Chico Enterprise Record.
