How long will it take to process my application?

Processing time depends on each applicant. The average length of time for processing is expected to be four weeks from the date the application is selected in the lottery and assigned to either Catholic Charities or The Salvation Army.  Applications will be considered on a weekly basis through the end of December or until all funds are expended, whichever comes first. If there is unverifiable information or there are multiple applications submitted all at one time, the four-week turnaround time may turn into six to eight weeks.
