City of Amarillo, TX – The Community Development department announces it will be accepting applications on-line for its Housing Assistance Program Waiting List beginning at 8am on Monday, July 25, 2016 and will remain open until further notice.
To better serve applicants and to make the application process available to all, including those who are least likely to apply, the entire application process can be accessed on-line at the City of Amarillo website, http://comdev.amarillo.gov or alternately at https://www.waitlistcheck.com/TX1024. Status information regarding placement on the list will be available on-line shortly after the closing date. Instructions regarding obtaining status information are provided during the on-line application process. Applications can only be provided on-line. Applicants must apply during the period the list is open for applications. The Community Development department may close the Waiting List at any time by posting a 24 hour notice on its website indicating the date and time the list will be closed.
Due to limited funding availability, applications for the waiting list will be selected and ordered, based on preferences of homelessness and local applicants, using a lottery system. Not all applicants will be placed on the waiting list. By randomly selecting the applications received for placement on the waiting lists, the process is fair. The time and date of receipt of the application on line has no bearing on whether an application will be selected for the waiting list. There is no need or advantage to applying immediately after the list opens. IF AN APPLICANT IS NOT SELECTED FOR THE WAITING LIST BY THE LOTTERY SYSTEM, THEY WILL HAVE TO REAPPLY UPON THE NEXT WAITING LIST OPENING.
The Community Development department will provide reasonable accommodation to ensure the application process is accessible to applicants who may have disabilities and cannot comply with the normal application process. Applicants indicating the need for a reasonable accommodation will be given the opportunity to apply through a written application completed by the close of the application timeframe.
