VOUCHER WAITLIST OPEN TIMES

From June 22, 2016 at 10:00AM until June 27, 2016 at 9:59AM (PST), the Housing Authority of the City of Alameda is accepting Section 8 Project-Based Voucher, HOME, and Independence Plaza waiting list applications for families, seniors and disabled households.

APPLICATION INFORMATION

To apply, visit and complete the online application page located here. The application must be submitted electronically and paper copies of the application form cannot be accepted.

If you don’t have internet access at home, you can use a computer at any public library in your city and submit an application from there. You can also use a computer at your family member or friend’s house.

If you need additional information about the application process, please call the multi-lingual information line at (888) 366-9510 during the waitlist opening period to listen to a pre-recorded message with application information.

 

 

Those who apply will be placed on the waiting list by random lottery, after sorting preferences (City of Alameda resident, disabled, veteran, in place, supportive services, terminated because of lack of funding or overleasing by the AHA, displaced).

If you need to check your status on the waitlist, you can do so by calling (844) 451-1756, or online here.

Please note that Section 8 Project-Based Voucher program is NOT the same as the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program. The Section 8 Project-Based Voucher program is somewhat similar to how Public Housing works in that tenants have to live in a specific unit to get housing assistance, whereas with the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program the tenants can look and choose housing themselves.

If you need more information or have any other questions, please visit the waitlist information page on the Housing Authority of the City of Alameda’s website, or give them a call at the number provided below.
