I am sorry to hear that. Did you have an interview? How long were you waiting to hear from them once you submitted all required documents?
Thank you.

I got a rejection letter because the household is compromised of a full time student and I sent information of adding somebody who isn't a full time student in to add into the household, is that okay?

No. Household size cannot be changed. Whoever is on the initial application, that is the family. The only way you can legitimately add someone is through birth, marriage, or adoption.

Full-time students are not eligible for 80/20 housing if they are the only household member.

The program is intended for the working poor, not for students.

I think the rationale is that students may graduate and get a high-paying job.

Here is the language from the Marketing Guidelines, which were just updated:

B. CHANGES TO HOUSEHOLD COMPOSITION
1. Changes to household composition on a submitted application that affect
eligibility will not be recognized, unless such change is due to an extenuating circumstance. Extenuating circumstances may include but are not limited to:
a. Death of a member of the household;
b. Birth in the household;
c. Separation or divorce;
d. Court order of custody;
e. Domestic violence.

Here's the link in case you would like to read up on it:

Does anyone know what happens if you are offered an apartment(in any low income housing) but later on enroll in school again? As either a part time or full time student. Do they expect you to never further your education??

After submitting documents, I was invited for an interview about 2 months later.


I was also initially rejected and had to go through the appeal process so that likely delayed things, but my log number was in the 400's so there weren't as many applicants being interviewed prior to my interview, compared with a log number in the four-thousands.


It seems like they get very overwhelmed by the amount of paperwork, appeals etc. And as they progress through the log, there are likely still earlier applicants filing appeals and submitting additional paperwork, so that can delay things.


Being a part-time student is acceptable. If you are full-time you may meet one of the following exceptions;

  1. By an individual who is:
  2. A student receiving assistance under Title IV of the Social Security Act,
  3. A student who was previously under the care and placement responsibility of the State agency responsible for administering a plan under part B or part E of title IV of the Social Security Act,[SIZE=2]2[/SIZE] or
  4. A student enrolled in a job training program receiving assistance under the Job Training Partnership Act or under other similar Federal, State or local laws.
  5. Entirely by full-time students if such students are
  6. Single parents and their children and such parents are not dependents (as defined in IRC 152, determined without regard to subsections (b)(1), (b)(2), and (d)(1)(B) thereof) of another individual and such children are not dependents (as so defined) of another individual other than a parent of such children,[SIZE=2]3[/SIZE] or
  7. Married and file a joint return

As a child, I was in foster care, and requested my records from the Administration For Children Services aka ACS, it used to be BCW back then, Bureau of Child Welfare. If you meet one of these exceptions, get the documentation, and they MUST ACCEPT IT. What that means is I can be a full-time student forever, and cannot be excluded from the program. Currently working on my doctorate degree. I would have been excluded without this paperwork.
