Apply for Assistance
To apply, download the application for the Oswego County Rental Assistance Program (Section 8). Please fill out all pages completely and make sure all family members 18 or older sign the Authorization to Release Information form. Also, you MUST sign the Optional Contact form on page 4. If you do not wish to list an alternate contact, you may check the box at the bottom of the page, but the form requires a signature to be considered part of a complete application. If you are claiming eligibility based on a disability you MUST send proof of the disability with the application (something from SSI/SSD would be best).
YOU MUST SEND PROOF OF YOUR PHYSICAL ADDRESS WITH YOUR APPLICATION. Acceptable proofs of residency are:
- household utility bill
- current lease
- proof of PA or SNAP benefits (dated within the last 6 months)
- a current bank statement or your most recent federal and state tax returns
We will not be able to process your application without proper proof of address or if any questions are left blank. The application will be mailed back to you as incomplete.
After completing the application please return the application and other documents to the address on page three of the application. You will receive a letter from us within 30 days after we receive your application stating that we received it. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact our office at 315-349-8263 and we will be happy to assist you.
