How long is a certificate valid? When a certificate expires, can it be renewed?

A certificate is valid for one year from the date of issue and may be renewed.   At the time of renewal, applicants must submit documentation that shows that their income limits still fall within the eligibility guidelines of the MPDU program and that you still meet all the minimum requirements of the program. When you are within 60 days of the expiration date of the current certificate, resubmit the MPDU application with the same required documentation.

In addition, you are responsible for keeping the city staff up to date with your information. If you change your address or phone number while your certificate is still active, we may not be able to reach you with information on the availability of units.
