FROM:            Carole E. Collins, Director, Bureau of Housing Management
 
RE:                   Applicants from Nursing Homes, Hospitals & Other Long Term Care Facilities
 
DATE:             March 13, 2006
 
This is a reminder that any person who applies for state-aided housing assistance while living in a nursing home, hospital, or long term care facility and cannot return to their home should be considered without housing.  Additionally, it should be accepted that the applicant did not cause or significantly contribute to his or her situation as the circumstances of the individual were beyond his or her control.  Applications from such persons should be reviewed for eligibility and qualification requirements consistent with the balance of the LHA’s review practices for any emergency case applicant.
 
If you have any questions on this matter, please feel free to call your housing management specialist.
