Please be advised if you are wishing to port into our jurisdiction, please do your research first. We are in an affordable housing crisis in Central Florida. Available units are hard to find.
Please read this page in its entirety so you are informed of the process. Further down this page is the process for once we receive your paperwork. It is important that you are informed of our policies.
We do not offer assistance in locating units, this is the responsibility of the participant. You can find a list of apartment complexes here. **Be advised when speaking to landlords, if you use your current income to determine if you qualify for a unit and your income does not transport with you, you may not qualify for the unit when you get here. Landlords know the calculation and will use current income to qualify you for the unit. If your income changes with the move, you will no longer qualify for the unit. We are not permitted to calculate what your rental amount is and what you qualify for until we receive your paperwork.
