What is the Mainstream Program?
The Mainstream Housing Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities Program (Mainstream Program) provides Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers to eligible disabled families. Eligibility criteria for this program are detailed below.
Welcome to the open enrollment and pre-application process.
This process will assist you in applying for a place on the waiting list for the Mainstream Program. You may apply at any time during the online application’s open enrollment period. Upon the closing of the enrollment period, HOM will perform a random sort of all eligible applications and place applicants on the Mainstream Program waiting list.
Additional eligibility criteria require U.S. citizenship or legal immigrant status, documentation of Social Security cards for all household members, signing required consent forms and additional “suitability” criteria requiring a criminal background check for all adult household members.
Verification of families’ eligibility according to all eligibility criteria will not be performed at the time of the pre-application. The open enrollment will serve as the method for placing applicants’ pre-applications on the waiting list. A final eligibility determination will be made at the time that families approach the top of the waiting list, which may be 6 months or more from the date of the open enrollment process.
Provide accurate information. Submission of false information or misrepresentation will result in disqualification from the open enrollment process and may result in loss of eligibility to participate in the Mainstream Program.
Only one application per household. Submission of multiple applications will result in disqualification from the open enrollment process.
Upon submission of your pre-application, you will receive an e-mail confirmation that your information was received.
