Helping individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless maintain housing and work towards self-sufficiency . . .
Applicants apply for Lakeshore CAP rental assistance in two ways:
Coordinated Entry System
Coordinated Entry System is designed to prioritize individuals and families by the most vulnerable population on a list called the "Prioritization List," which can be filtered for the most critical households. Applicants may be referred through Lakeshore CAP or through partners in our service areas. If you are experiencing homelessness such as staying in a shelter, car or on the street, please contact us for a referral to this list. Our partnerships are with Hope House, The Haven, In Courage, Safe Harbor and The Salvation Army. For more information, visit http://wiboscoc.org/coordinated-entry.html
Walk-in applicants are welcome to fill out an application during business hours or call to have one sent to your mailing address. Once processed, applicants will be notified by mail of potential eligibility or of denial based upon our HUD grant requirements. A referral to other agencies will be provided for possible financial assistance or other needs.
There are different processes for different programs. A Case Manager works diligently to communicate the next step in each of our programs: Homelessness Prevention, Rapid Rehousing and Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA).
