This booklet will give you information about rules for different housing programs.  It will also give you practical suggestions about how to make the case that your application should be approved.

These rules are also good to know about before you apply. Knowing the reasons that you might be denied can help you focus your efforts on certain programs and give you ideas about how to prepare a better application."
