When should I update my application?

You update your application when:  

Change of address.  AHA will contact you by mail when your name reaches the top of the waiting list. It is important that you provide updated address information to AHA.  If AHA is unable to contact you and/or your mail is returned as undeliverable by the post office, your name will be removed from the waiting list. 

Change in family composition:   When you reach the top of the waiting list, AHA will confirm information you have provided regarding the number of persons who will be a part of your household. The number of persons in your household can determine when you are called for assistance.

Change in income: You should report any significant changes in your household income as they occur. For applicants, AHA considers changes of $500 or more annually, up or down, to be a significant change. Your income level can determine the order in which you are called for assistance. 

Change in Place of Employment:  AHA provides a preference in admissions for persons who live or work in Anaheim. If you are seeking a preference based on your employment status, it is important that you advise AHA if you or any adult household member had obtained or lost qualifying employment in the City of Anaheim.
