Eligibility Criteria: Must be homeless as defined by HUD guidelines (aka sleeping on the streets, in a shelter, in your car, in a park, etc - sleeping on a friend/families' couch or almost being homeless does not count). One exception to this rule is if you are actively escaping domestic violence.​
Application/Intake Process: If you are actively homeless or escaping DV, you would reach out to one of their several access points. There is a map on this website that shows you the specific ones closest to your area:  https://www.nocococ.org/cahps  Reach out to your closet access point spot, set up an appointment with a case manager (through the access point) either via virtually or in-person and they will walk you through the CE (Coordinated Entry) steps for housing navigation. The steps beyond this point vary on a case-by-case basis, so it's best to work with your case manager from then on regarding housing.  

To be eligible for housing services through the homeless services system, you must first complete a survey. You can use this form to sign up for the survey or to update contact information. As you complete the form, please include appropriate times for a Resource Navigator to contact you or your case manager directly.

Wait time: Completing a survey does not guarantee housing or financial assistance. It is not an emergency service, and it is not a Section 8 housing application. Completing a survey informs the homelessness services system that you have a need for housing. After completing the survey, we encourage you to continue to search for housing resources through other agencies and programs.​
