The website of HRA states that medical and service organizations typically refer applicants to them, but that people may apply directly to ServiceLine, which processes HASA applications.

The site also states that applicants must provide medial documentation to ServiceLine in order to establish eligibility, and that the documentation must conform with either New York State AIDS Institute's definition of clinical symptomatic HIV or with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's definition of AIDS. Valid forms of documentation include one of the following: a Medical Request for Home Care signed by a physician, a HASA/SSA Joint Application, a Request for Program Admission Form 488X, a Comprehensive Medical Summary form received from the Division of Parole, and a hospital letter or a hospital social work referral.

HRA provides the following PDF applications: an adult application, a child application and an addendum for an HASA application. Applicants may have to pay program fees or rental contributions based on their income.
