Thank you for completing a pre-screening survey application for the CTL Rental Assistance Program. Depending on where your pre-screening application survey falls in line, the next step would be to hear from the Program Coordinator. The goal is to contact applicants within 3 business days. Please ensure you have the required documents in preparation for the call. Without the required documentation, applications cannot be processed. Submission is not a guarantee of assistance or a guarantee that you will receive a call for the next stage, as applications are processed on a first come first serve basis. CTL is committed to processing as many applications as there is funding, however, there is anticipation for high demand.
