A one-time deposit (small - about $350)

We didn't have anything like this in place the one time someone from the
waiting list has had the opportunity to become a unit-assigned household,
and it was really a problem. They took a long time to decide; things were
looking dicey about the project continuing at all; the people who wanted
to leave really wanted their money back out (it was borrowed and they were
paying interest on it) and were getting angry that we weren't actively
recruiting from the outside to fill the space. Since then we said "Two
weeks to decide, and an additional 2 weeks to come up with the money." But
that hasn't been tested out yet....
