REPORT ALL CHANGES!
 
In order for the Authority to meet your needs it has to have current information. Once each year the Authority will ask you to update our pre-application. However, it is in your best interest to notify the Authority in writing if there are changes in your household composition, income, address, phone number or interest in the program between updates.
