Mainstream Housing - Applicant

New Avenues' Mainstream Housing Program's Waiting List is now open in Ashtabula County only. The wait list is closed in Cuyahoga and Lake counties.
PLEASE NOTE: New Avenues has not received additional vouchers. We are simply adding applicants to our waiting list. We will only be housing approximately 3-5 individuals and families this year.
To be considered for our program, please complete the pre-application below and submit it following the instructions. Applications must be completed, in ink, by the Head of Household. The Head of Household must be an adult (18 years or older) with a disability and the legal capacity to enter into a lease. If a guardian or other adult completes the application for the Head of Household, the Head of Household must sign the application on page 6 verifying the accuracy of the information.
Mailing Instructions: New Avenues will rank all applications based on preferences and date of postmark. An application must show proof of mailing consisting of one of the following:
(1) A legibly dated U.S. Postal Service Postmark
(2) A legible mail receipt with the date of mailing stamped by the U.S. Postal Service, indicating what was mailed
(3) Postage to return the completed application is first class postage stamp.
New Avenues does not accept either of the following as proof of mailing:
(1) A private metered postmark
(2) A mail receipt that is not dated by the US Postal Service
The waiting list order is determined by the date of postmark on the application received by New Avenues and number of accumulated local preferences based on disability and income. One application per applicant is allowed. Duplicates will be discarded; the application with the earliest date will be kept by New Avenues. Applications postmarked the same date with the same local preferences will be ranked based on a lottery process and placed on the wait list accordingly. Applicants will be notified of their rank on the wait list by New Avenues.
