The Program Operations Department has the primary responsibility to administer the applications for housing received by the Yurok
Indian Housing Authority and to provide housing information to tribal members. What this entails is, the staff within the department
assist tribal members complete applications for various housing services and compiling the necessary documentation required to complete
the application file. It is the tribal members responsibility to provide any documentation requested by the staff. Applicants cannot
receive services until all required documentation is on file. This includes a complete and signed application, Release of Information Forms
signed by all adults in the household, proof of tribal enrollment, copies of Social Security cards for all members of the household,
and income verification for all adult members of the household. Upon the Receipt of an application, a file is made for the tribal member
and their information is entered on the database. This database then ranks them according to their point score and places them on the
waiting list for the program they have applied for. The point score criteria is the single most important factor in the priority which tribal
members receive services. Elders are eligible to receive the most points, thus giving them priority on our waiting lists. Each Program
which the housing authority offers has its’ own waiting list. An applicants place on the waiting list can move up or down as new
applications are received or as applicants receive services and are removed from the waiting list.
