Affordable Housing Waitlist Management, How It Works

Real estate companies are looking for an improved method of managing housing waitlists, and all of the information that comes with them. Many low-income citizens are able to apply for housing that will have subsidized rent. However, this involves an application with specific requirements that needs to be reviewed and approved. This can be a lot to take on manually and can leave room for error. So how can these challenges be addressed to improve the entire process?

SimplyCast presents the Affordable Housing Waitlist Use Case. This combination of digital resources allows the applications to be gathered and reviewed quickly and efficiently, without the need for tons of manual work.

This solution was designed primarily for use by housing authority staff and applicants.

Using the Automated Solution

SimplyCast foresaw the need for a more efficient system that allows housing applications to be collected and stored in a centralized location. There is a high volume of applications coming in, as the amount of citizens needing affordable housing has increased. This can quickly become overwhelming for those processing the applications as they want to help as many people as possible, while also ensuring requirements are met. This is where the automated affordable housing waitlist management comes in to the picture. It allows applicants and housing providers to submit their information to housing authorities digitally, builds and maintains a database of applicants and available units, and finally, notifies relevant applicants when a new unit is available. Here is a short breakdown of how each step works, and who completes each one.

Step 1- Applicant

The process starts with the applicant filling out a short online form, submitting the details relevant for the housing authority to process (contact information, personal details, etc.).

Step 2- Housing Authority

Once the application is submitted the staff member will get a notification. They can then review the application and send it to the centralized system along with other applications.

Step 3- Housing Provider

The housing providers fill out a digital form to inform housing authority regarding a new unit's availability.

Step 4- Automation

In this step, the solution automatically maps the data provided by the housing provider with the existing database of affordable housing waitlisted applicants. If they find match(es), then the solution automatically sends personalized notification to eligible applicants.

Step 5- Automation

In this step, automated notifications are sent to applicants that are eligible for the available unit, based on the information those applicants provide.
