The Lorain Metropolitan Housing Authority has determined to stop accepting applications for all housing programs effective 11:59 p.m. October 31, 2019.
Currently there are approximately 3,000 applications to be processed for the Public Housing, Housing Choice Voucher, and Multifamily housing programs. Historically, only a small percentage - 30% - of applicants complete the required process for housing assistance. In order to increase efficiency and reach those in need, the Authority will process all 3,000 applicants for housing programs to determine who is eligible before accepting new applications. Processing current applications will speed up the process for eligible families, as many are currently waiting months to be seen due to the volume of applicants.
LMHA Admissions Supervisor, Jennifer Zvosechz, indicates that many applicant circumstances change while waiting processing, which often affect the family’s status and eligibility. Faster processing of applications will provide better service to families in need already on the application list. After the current applicant list has been exhausted, applications for housing programs will again be accepted. The Authority is projected to reopen the application lists in early 2020.
LMHA has begun advertising that effective October 31, 2019 at 11:59pm, we will stop accepting applications for all housing programs.
