However, apartments with balconies are offered on a first-come-first-serve basis and cannot be requested or transferred to after a resident has moved in.
HUD requires that 40% of vacant units in EP I be rented annually to persons with “extremely low income”. Therefore, depending on the resident make-up, a person with “extremely low income” may be placed at the top of the waiting list.
If you are offered an apartment and you are not ready to accept it and move in, you may decline. You will remain on the waiting lists; however you will be placed at the bottom.
