Involuntarily displaced from a dwelling unit in the municipality of Lowell by natural disaster, by fire or by government action.
Working head of household or working spouse (who has averaged 20 hours of work a week for at least six months), or a person 62 years old or older or a person unable to work because of the extent of their disability.
A legal resident of Lowell or a person working in Lowell an average of 20 hours a week or more or a person with a job offer to work in Lowell with a minimum of 20 hours a week of work.
