Resident Application and Move-In Evaluation: Other Criteria

Resident Application and Move-In Evaluation for Recovery Housing > Resident Application and Move-In Evaluation: Other Criteria

 

Other Application and Evaluation Criteria

You may consider adding other criteria to your application and evaluation process.

Such as:

If your recovery home allows children to live with their parents in recovery housing full-time, you must also be clear about what ages children can live in the home. Recovery house operator have the ability to determine what ages are appropriate based on the house structure and program, but you must be clear about it in your evaluation criteria, including whether there is a limit to the number of children who may live with their parents based on the space requirements for the home.

If your program receives specific funding, ensure that you are in compliance with funding requirements.  Your funding sources may require that residents meet specific requirements in order to be provided with housing.  For example, you may be required to demonstrate that residents are low-income.  Therefore, you will need to add your application process a strategy to collect this eligibility information from residents in order to meet your specific funding requirements.  Be sure to review all funding requirements carefully to ensure that you are providing eligible services.

For residents who are unable to be supported by outside funding sources, consider adding evaluation criteria that can help you understand if the person is willing and able to pay the appropriate amount of rent or program fees that are required.

For residents who are only able to be supported temporarily by an outside funding source, ensure that you are able to collect information on their application that helps you determine if you will be able to help them transition to paying rent or program fees once that time period is over.  But know that establishing resident rent payments cannot be used to force residents to move out after a grant or subsidy period is over.

Additionally, you may wish to have specific criteria for considering residents who had previously lived in the home.  It is up to you how you handle such situations.  However, it is recommended that you be clear about any criteria that you may have for residents who had previously lived in the home.  Such criteria must also be made clear, so all individuals know and understand your expectations.
