The county said the "one-stop event" expedites the pre-qualification process, offers assistance to complete an application, and assists applicants with scanning and uploading the required documents onsite.

Below is the list of dates and times for the three-day event at the Morrow Center, located at 1180 Southlake Circle (Suite 100).

  • Tuesday, Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday, Dec. 7 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Those who want to attend can preregister online. The county said residents who have internet connectivity and a scanner can upload their documents online before the event to reduce wait times.
