The waitlist application period for BMR rental and purchase program is open annually during the month of October. Beginning in October 2017, all applicants must have a First Time Homebuyer Certificate from a HUD certified agency to apply for the 2017 purchase waitlist.
Eligibility Forms will be accepted on the first business day of October annually and will close on the last business day of October annually. Anyone who wishes to be included on the waitlist must apply each year within this time frame, including those who were on the waitlist in previous years. Each eligibility form will be separated into a subgroup based on priority points. For applicants reapplying for a position on the waitlist, the applicant will maintain their current position on the waitlist from the previous year, provided the applicant continues to qualify for a BMR unit and their priority points remain unchanged. Applicants who are no longer income eligible, or who do not reapply, will be removed from the waitlist each year.
