Priority is given to families that are residents (living or working in Sacramento County),
have a disabled family member, have a U.S. veteran in the household, and who are paying more than 50% of their
income to rent. Once families are determined eligible, they receive a voucher. The voucher shows prospective
landlords that the family is eligible for a subsidy. Families take this voucher and look in the community for
a rental unit that they would like to rent. If the landlord accepts the voucher, and the rental unit meets
certain criteria (ie, it has to pass inspection and the rent amount has to be acceptable), the family pays a
portion of their income to the landlord each month to cover their portion of the rent. The Housing Authority
pays the difference between what the family can afford and what the owner is asking for. As long as the family
continues to be eligible, they can take voucher and move to another rental unit and maintain the rental assistance.
This waiting list is now closed.
