  • Instructions

    testIn order to be considered, an application must contain all of the requested information, including a Resident Income Verification Form for each dwelling unit. If the exact 'Year of Building Construction' is unknown, please estimate to the best of your knowledge. Property located in a flood hazard area must be properly insured in order to be eligible. Pictures of exterior street-side elevations are required in order to determine if properties are historic, which may affect the lead control strategy. Please use one of the two checklists provided below to insure that your application is complete.
