Family members are required to submit evidence of eligible status only one time during their continued occupancy of the subsidized unit.

The declaration is a computerized form and each adult residing in the subsidized unit must sign the form. For each child residing in the unit, the form must be signed by an adult responsible for the child.
· For non-citizens who are 62 years of age or older or who will be 62 years of age or older, the evidence consists of a signed declaration of eligible immigration status and proof of age document.
