The application period will be open for one month (March 20 – April 24, 2018)
After all the applications are in, there will be two lotteries in which applicants are selected by an electronic random number selector. Each application submitted has a corresponding “Case Number” when submitted, which will be entered into the random number generator.
Low income lottery: pre-selection from only low-income applicant pool. This ensures that that a percentage of funds are pre-allocated to low income residents, and increases chances for low income residents to be selected
Standard lottery: selection from remaining applicant pool (low income applicants not already selected included)
The exact number of applicants selected for each lottery will be dependent on the number of low-income applications received. The City will select up to 30 of the 150 applicants from the low income lottery.
**Applicant Selection Update**
The City was able to double the funding for this year’s program because of the high interest in participation. All 366 applicants that applied for the program will be included in this first year of the Sidewalks Repair Program.
