WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

I THINK I AM ELIGIBLE, I WANT TO APPLY - SO WHAT NEXT?

If you think you are eligible, speak to a staff member at the homelessness service that support you, or speak to your local Housing Executive. Only specific organisations can apply.


Members of the public cannot apply.

Only selected homelessness organisations and the NI Housing Executive (NIHE) can apply.

All other agencies must go through NIHE.

The packs are usually reserved for people who are…











“LEGALLY” HOMELESS (FDA)


HAVE NOT RECEIVED A PACK BEFORE


ABOUT TO MOVE






The Housing Executive decide this based on 4 tests, and they call a person who passes these tests "FDA".


You can only receive one pack.  If you applied before, but didn't get a pack, you can ask the NIHE to check if you're eligible.


The scheme is intended for people who are moving into new tenancy (i.e. Not for those already settled in a tenancy).
