The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program is a tenant-based rental assistance program which provides rental assistance in the form of a monthly subsidy for eligible low-income families. For more information about the HCV program, visit www.hud.gov.
Interested persons may submit an application when the wait list is open; eligible applications will be placed in a lottery pool. Only one application per applicant/social security number will be accepted. All duplicate applications will be discarded. Two thousand (2,000) applications (total) will be chosen from the lottery pool by a random, electronic lottery system for placement on the HCV wait list. The remainder of the applications will be discarded. Letters will be sent to all who submit an application within 60 days of the closing of the wait list as to the status of their application. If any letter is sent to a wait list applicant but is returned in the mail, the application will not be accepted for placement on the wait list.
Since applications are selected by a lottery system, there is no advantage or disadvantage to applying on either the first day or last day that the wait list is open. After an application has been submitted, it is the applicant’s responsibility to contact the Shasta County Housing Authority to update their mailing address if it changes.
The Shasta County Housing Authority will accept applications for the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program wait list Wednesday, July 1, 2020 through Monday, August 31, 2020.
