Are there ways to speed up the process?

If you have special circumstances, we may be able to give you preference, move you up on the list and shorten your wait. You may qualify for preferences if you:

  • Are a displaced person or family from a federal declared disaster situation
  • Have been displaced from housing due to government sponsored improvements or redevelopment

Note: We can’t just take your word for these preferences. You must supply valid proof from appropriate sources.
