MAA Home Study Update Steps

  • Complete and return the attached Home Study Application and application fee. You will receive a packet outlining the various documents you will need to submit in order to complete your home study update.
  • Complete and return a summary of the changes since the original Home Study.
  • Your case will be assigned to a social worker, who will contact you to set up your first appointment together. Payment is due prior to or at the first meeting. Generally, only one visit is required to update a Home Study, which must take place in your home. All household members should be present.
  • Submit the additional required documents (DE, NJ & PA or Illinois). Once all information has been obtained and all necessary meetings have taken place, the updated home study will be written.
  • Review the draft of your updated Home Study report.
  • If you are using a different placement agency, the placement agency will review the updated Home Study report.
  • MAA will finalize your report.
