    • Withdrawn: The homeowner is no longer in need of assistance and has asked to have their application withdrawn.

    • Denied-Duplicate: The application has been denied because there has already been an application submitted by the homeowner previously.
    • Submitted to QC Review: Your application has been finalized and is pending final review and approval.
    • Paid: The reviewing agency has processed the check, and the approval information has been sent to the homeowner.  
    Closed: All payments that the homeowner has been approved for have been sent.  No more assistance is available, so the application has been closed out.
