SYSTEM FOR PRIORITIZING ASSISTANCE
As applications to renthelpnm.org are processed, priorities are assigned providing a “high priority” status for those who have incomes less than 50% area median income or who are on unemployment or who are in the eviction process. This prioritization allows managers to sort awards ready for final review/approval by priority status and take the high priority applications first. The decision to also rate those in the eviction process as high priority reflects renthelpnm.org’s focus on keeping families housed by moving resources quickly to those in imminent danger of losing their homes.
