This bill would require the Department of Community Affairs to continuously maintain an open enrollment period in which rental assistance applicants may submit pre-applications to be placed on the waiting list for the federal Housing Choice Voucher Program administered by the department. Neither current federal nor State law establishes a specific length of time that these open enrollment periods must last. The department, however, has used its discretion to limit these open enrollment periods to very short periods of time. This bill would ensure that applicants for this rental assistance may submit their pre-applications at any time, so that they do not lose the opportunity to be placed on the waiting list simply for missing a short window of time that the department happened to select.
