How to Apply
  • Applications will be considered on a rolling basis, meaning you can apply for assistance at anytime. Beginning the last week of each month, applications submitted during the previous 4 weeks will be reviewed. Recipients of assistance funding will be notified by the first of the following month. For example, if you apply for OUTLast assistance between April 3 and April 21, 2023, your application will be reviewed between April 24-28. If you are selected, you will be notified of your selection by May 1. However, if you apply for assistance after April 21, your application will not be considered until the next reading period, May 29-June 2. Recipients of rental and utility assistance will be notified before the first of the month so that their bills can be settled on time.
  • Las solicitudes de OUTLast se considerarán de forma continua, lo que significa que puede solicitar asistencia en cualquier momento. A partir de la última semana de cada mes, se revisarán las solicitudes presentadas durante las 4 semanas anteriores. Los beneficiarios de los fondos de asistencia serán notificados el primer día del mes siguiente. Por ejemplo, si solicita asistencia de OUTLast entre el 3 y el 21 de abril de 2023, su solicitud será revisada entre el 24 y el 28 de abril. Si es seleccionado, se le notificará su selección antes del 1 de mayo. Sin embargo, si solicita asistencia después del 21 de abril, su solicitud no se considerará hasta el próximo período de lectura, del 29 de mayo al 2 de junio. Destinatarios del alquiler y los servicios públicos la asistencia será notificada antes del primer día del mes para que sus facturas puedan ser saldadas a tiempo.
