Housing Authority Wait Lists

1. Housing Choice Voucher Program (previously known as Section 8)

The Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV) assists very low-income families in renting decent, safe and sanitary rental units available on the open market. The families pay a portion of their income toward rent and the Housing Authority, with funds from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, pays the remainder. The rental unit must pass regular inspections and the rental amount must be approved, but the family chooses where to live. For more information, click here.

2. Public Housing

The Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency owns and manages more than 3,000 public housing units within the City and County of Sacramento. These housing units consist of a variety of apartments, duplexes and single family homes. Low-income families pay a portion of their income toward rent each month, based on their income. A criminal background and landlord reference check is required prior to admission into the program. For more information, click here.

Updating Your Application

Applicants that are on a wait list must notify the Housing Authority of any changes to the family information that was submitted on their HCV or Public Housing pre-application within 30 days of the change. Changes such as address, email address, family composition, and preferences must all be reported to ensure that you receive notification when you are selected from the wait list, and to ensure you are selected for the correct bedroom size so that your application process can be completed.
