Eligibility

Households in Pierce County that are experiencing homelessness or who will be homeless within 72 hours (this includes individuals and families with no children). Unaccompanied youth 13 and over may also apply.

Application Instructions

STEP 1 Screening - During the initial phone call, a Housing Specialist will determine eligibility for transitional housing, rapid re-housing, and permanent supportive housing services within Pierce County. The call usually takes about 15 minutes, where the caller provides information about their specific housing situation. If the household is eligible a screener will schedule an appointment with an assessor.

STEP 2 Assessment - Once a household is scheduled for an on-site assessment, they need to bring an income statement and homeless certification.

IF THE HOUSEHOLD HAS THEM:
*Signed homeless certification form (staff at Access Point 4 Housing will clarify what this form is)
*Court papers noting unlawful eviction.

STEP 3 Placement Roster and Referral - The Housing Specialist working with a household will provide information about local emergency shelters, and additional resources at the time of assessment. Then the households name will be put on a Placement Roster and when a housing resource becomes available, AP4H staff will make a follow up phone call to the household.

Fees

No fees for the screening and intakes.
