The Navigator asks
Do you know about housing applications?....
Affordable Housing applications differ widely, but the following are sample questions that may (or may not) appear on any of them. Take a look so you have an idea what might be asked, and be prepared to answer these questions for YOURSELF and EVERY MEMBER OF THE HOUSEHOLD who will be living in the rental unit. Gather all supporting paperwork related to these questions so you have them on hand to quickly refer to them as you complete applications and answer truthfully and to the best of your ability:
 
Name, address, phone, date of birth, social security number. Other questions could include citizenship status, gender, language, ethnic/racial information for statistical purposes.

Email for “head of household”—if you don’t have an email, it may be a good idea to set one up for yourself, or use the email of a trusted friend or relative, especially if future communications with this property is through email.

Gross Income—Dollar amount, source of the income and how often you receive it. Examples: Social security, Wages, Pensions, Public Assistance, Child Support, Alimony, rental and any other income.

Is applicant, spouse or co-applicant a US veteran? Is applicant a senior citizen? Is applicant homeless, precariously housed (living in car, living in homeless shelter, couch-surfing, or in unsafe or unhealthy conditions), or in danger of becoming homeless. Is applicant, spouse or co-applicant disabled? Does applicant require supportive services, or require wheelchair, crutches, cane, walker, live-in aide? Some applications give preference to residents of Bergen County, or other counties depending on the property.

The following questions MAY appear on an application, so be prepared:
