Public & Subidized Housing Eligibility Requirements

To qualify, you must fall within the definition of a family and meet occupancy standards and criteria that fall under the following list.  Eligibility criteria include: Citizenship, Income Requirements, Background Checks, Disability/Handicapped, and Reasonable Necessary Accommodations.
References will also be required of all applicants. All public and subsidized housing is subject to federal, state and local fair housing laws. It is illegal to discriminate against any person because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap/disability, family status, national origin, receipt of public assistance, marital status or sexual orientation.

CITIZENSHIP
Verification of Citizenship or Eligible Non-citizen Status of each family member regardless of age must be determined. Prior to being admitted, all citizens and nationals will be required to sign a declaration under penalty of perjury. (They will be required to show proof of their status by such means as Social Security card, birth certificate, military ID or I-94 military DD 214 Form.) Prior to being admitted, all eligible non--citizens who are 62 years of age or older will be required to sign a declaration under penalty of perjury. They will also be required to show proof of age.

Upon application, all eligible non-citizens must sign a declaration of their status and a verification consent form and provide their original Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) documentation. The St. Cloud HRA will make a copy of the individual's INS documentation and place the copy in the file. The HRA will verify their status through the INS SAVE system. If the INS SAVE system cannot confirm eligibility, the St. Cloud Housing & Redevelopment Authority will mail information to the INS so a manual check can be made of INS records.

Family members who do not claim to be citizens, nationals or eligible non-citizens, or whose status cannot be confirmed, must be listed on a statement of non-eligible members and the list must be signed by the head of the household. Any family member who does not choose to declare there status must be listed on the statement of non-eligible members. If no family member is determined to be eligible under this Section, the family's admission will be denied.

If the St. Cloud Housing & Redevelopment Authority determines that a family member has knowingly permitted an ineligible non-citizen (other than any ineligible non-citizens listed on the lease) to permanently reside in their unit, the family’s assistance will be terminated.
