After submitting the Application:
- Once the 1000 applications are processed, you may verify placement on the waiting list by checking the Lake MHA website, lakehousing.org after June 15, 2018. Click on the link that says: “Waiting List Status and Position Lookup.” Enter your social security number to view your confidential position on the waiting list. If you are not in the waiting list look-up, you did not make the waiting list. Due to the volume of calls we expect to receive and for confidentiality, please do not call the office for position look-up, as we will not be able to take your social security number over the phone.
- While on the waiting list, you are responsible for notifying Lake MHA, in writing, of any changes to your application information, including address and phone number changes.
- Periodically, you will receive communication to update your information for Lake MHA, as well as when you are selected from the waiting list. Please respond to the communication promptly as instructed.
