Why is my assistance request (i.e. application) withdrawn?

Written By Penny C (Administrator)

Updated at December 31st, 2020

Assistance requests have been moved to the WITHDRAWN status for one of the following reasons:

Reasons Moved to Withdrawn Actions That Can be Taken By Applicant
1. You had an incomplete assistance request at the time of the program deadline on December 7, 2020.

Applicants moved to withdrawn for this reason are unable to appeal the move. If you need additional housing assistance, please contact 211 (Toll Free:1.800.543.7709; Local: 651.291.0211) for housing resources and support.

2. You indicated to your program administrator that you do not plan to complete your application.

You may appeal this decision with your program administrator within 14 days of your application being moved to withdrawn.


3. Your program administrator made several unsuccessful attempts to contact you about completing your application prior to December 7, 2020.

You may appeal this decision with your program administrator within 14 days of your application being moved to withdrawn.

4. The software inadvertently allowed you to submit your application after December 7, 2020 at 11:59. (Each assistance request submission is timestamped. Assistance requests submitted AFTER 12/7/2020 will be moved to withdrawn because they did not meet the deadline.)

Applicants moved to withdrawn for this reason are unable to appeal the move. If you need additional housing assistance, please contact 211 (Toll Free:1.800.543.7709; Local: 651.291.0211) for housing resources and support.

6. On December 30, 2020, your submitted assistance request did not include an amount of requested assistance.

Why did the COVID-19 Housing Assistance Program stop accepting applications after December 7?

The COVID-19 Assistance Program is funded by federal dollars through the Coronavirus Relief Fund, which was authorized by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and this funding expires on December 31, 2020. Local administrators need the rest of December to review and process as many applications as possible.
