General Guidelines

All families, including single individuals, elderly and/or disabled person(s), at least eighteen (18) years of age, in which at least one (1) household member is a United States citizen or an eligible immigrant, may apply. NOTE: Current participants in the HACSM MTW Self-Sufficiency program are not considered eligible to apply.

Eligibility is based on the income limits , HUD regulations, and HACSM policies governing the MTW program at the time of program admission.

Preference will be given to persons who live, work, or have been hired to work in San Mateo County.

HACSM will only accept one pre-application per household. Duplicate pre-applications will be rejected.

You will receive a Submission Confirmation after you submit, update, or renew the pre-application. No further notifications will be sent by HACSM.

Your pre-application will automatically expire in twelve (12) months.

To maintain your information and remain on the waiting list, you must update or renew your pre-application before the expiration date. The expiration date will be noted on your pre-application Submission Confirmation page.

HACSM will conduct lottery draws periodically when MTW vouchers become available. If you are selected, HACSM will send an eligibility interview appointment letter to the mailing address on record.

Your income, household information, and preferences will be verified at the time of the eligibility interview.

You will need to create an online account in order to submit, update, or renew your pre-application.
