Regional Housing Authority Announces Opening Of The Housing Choice Voucher Program Waiting List (Formerly Known As The Section 8 Program)
The Housing Authority of the County of Stanislaus is announcing the opening of the Housing Choice Voucher Program Waiting Lists (HCV Program), for the Counties of Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, Inyo, Mariposa, Mono, and Tuolumne. The Housing Authority maintains a separate wait list for each respective County.
The HCV Program is a rental subsidy program which assists very low-income households with paying rent in the private rental market. Typically, a program participant pays between 30-40% of their income towards the rent and the HCV Program subsidizes the difference directly to a private landlord. Eligibility is based on income and household size. The income limits are posted on our website for review at www.stancoha.org.
Due to restricted funding availability, the Housing Authority will be limiting wait list admission to only those applicants who qualify for the Local “Residency Preference”, which means that only residents or persons working within these counties who meet the eligibility criteria for the HCV Program will be admitted to the wait list for the county in which they reside or are employed. Applicants who do not reside in any of the counties listed above will be denied admission to the waiting list.
The Housing Authority wait list opening will be held from Wednesday, September 20, 2017 until further notice. Due to the uncertainty of when the list will be closing, it is very important to apply as soon as possible.
Applications may be obtained online by visiting our website at www.stancoha.org during the wait list opening dates specified.
