Section 8 Housing in California

The Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) is a federal program that provides financial assistance for housing to those who qualify. The program allows low-income families and individuals, the elderly, and persons with disabilities to live in privately owned homes or apartments that are available for rent.

To apply for Section 8 housing assistance, locate your local housing agency from the list below. You can then apply in person or call for more information.

As part of the application process your local agency will verify your eligibility. In general, your household income must be less than 50% of the median income for the county or metropolitan area where you intend to live. Your local authority will provide you with further details regarding eligibility.
