I’ve just moved to the top of the list in my area. I applied on 10
January, yes, this year. My appointment is this coming Monday. Each
area varies with its waiting list.
< places were nice and well kept. You need to be a bit careful about the
place you choose because some places aren’t so nice. You need to get a
list of the subidized apartment complexes in your area, from the HUD
website, and go and look at all the places first.>>
Again, I think this varies from area to area. Here, you pick out the
apartment and get approval from HUD, and it must meet their
standards, including two exits. The apartment we’re in at the moment
will not qualify.
Again, there’ll be a waiting list to get into an apartment. At
least, that’s been my experience.>>
This is probably singular to each area. I live in a fairly low
population area, and from what I’m told, this is not the case here.
A man around the corner from me came here and applied for HUD and was
on within six months. His income is greater than mine. My income
was the reason I was pushed to the top of the list perhaps a bit more
quickly. The average waiting time in my area is three months.
buy a home. My income from Social Security Disability is way too low
for most of the programs that I’ve seen. I don’t even qualify for a
Habitat for Humanity home.>>
Ask HUD about this. From what I’ve been told, they *will* assist you
in buying a home. They will use what they would allot for your rent
toward the mortgage instead–but you must, I believe, have the down
payment, if one is needed. Again, it must meet their requirements.
On other things, Poppy, my apologies for not sending the Nine Layer
Pudding recipe to the list yet. Our cat, who wasn’t even three, died
on the 4th, and we’ve taken it very hard. While I made the dinner as
planned–and then some–I didn’t make the pudding as a result. I’ll
post the recipe hopefully this weekend.
