The Sacramento Housing Authority will open wait lists for Public Housing and Downtown Elderly Project Based vouchers in the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV/formerly Section 8) programs for online applicants at 12:01 a.m., Monday, November 29, 2010.
Wait lists will open for public housing that is owned and managed by the Housing Authority.
Another wait list will open for project based vouchers in housing designated for Elderly families. The head of household spouse or the co-head of household must be at least 55 or older to apply and priority is given to families aged 62 and older.
The vouchers are not transferable to other housing on the private market.
Applicants may apply online directly to the communities where they want to live.
Online pre-application submission is recommended since applicants will be placed on the wait lists according to the date and time the application is submitted, and by the number of bedrooms needed.
A confirmation receipt is immediately issued after the pre-application is submitted online.

The wait lists will remain open until further notice.
