The Residential Housing Assistance Board meets quarterly on the second Tuesday of January, April, July, and October. As long as your application was submitted prior to two weeks before the next meeting date, it will be reviewed at the next scheduled meeting.
The Board can only approve reimbursements for specific items, so they rely on itemized invoices to understand what work was completed to determine if that work is eligible for reimbursement under the City of Fairlawn Codified Ordinances Section 291.011. If an itemized invoice is not provided, the Board will request that one be provided.
