    Answered . Why were you evicted from your apt? If it was for non-payment of your portion of the rent, you will not receive a transfer voucher until you pay the back rent. If you need assistance paying the back rent, you may be entitlted to a "one-time" payment from social services.

    Answered . The reason for you eviction could have a lot to do with the problems you are having now. If you were evicted for not paying your portion of the rent that would explain why you are not getting your recertification now.
