Applicants from Nursing Homes, Hospitals & Other Long Term Care Facilities
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
