  • The proposed criterion for selection for a TBRA participant’s selection is a process that will treat applicants fairly and consistently while providing an effective method for determining eligibility. This includes consistent determinations as to which applicants should be placed on the waiting list, issued a coupon, or determined ineligible to participate in the program, and comply with HUD and MSHDA rules on non-discrimination. COTS believe that an up-to-date and well-managed waiting list promotes fair and consistent treatment of families and ensures that needy families receive assistance as quickly as possible. This approach will result in a waiting list that has a sufficient number of eligible applicants to ensure that new and turnover coupons are issued as quickly as possible to eligible applicants. At the same time, the waiting list will be managed to prevent it from growing to such a size that the wait for housing is unreasonable. The waiting list will will be open and accept applications three times a week between designated hours. This approach will result in a waiting list that has a sufficient number of eligible applicants to ensure that new and turnover coupons are issued as quickly as possible to eligible applicants. At the same time, the waiting list will be managed to prevent it from growing to such a size that the wait for housing is unreasonable. such as the receipt of new increments, availability of a large number of previously issued coupons, existence of an outdated or diminished waiting list,
