Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Online Pre-ApplicationHousing Authority of the County of Santa Cruz
Please complete the following questions in order to be placed on the Waiting List for the Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8). If you need assistance completing this form, please call the Waiting List Call Center at (831) 454-5990. An entire household may apply with one pre-application. However, if there is any change in the household, or if the household separates, only those household members living with the Head of Household will remain on the waiting list. If any other members leave the household, those members may apply with a new Pre-Application when the Waiting List is open. Only one Pre-Application will be accepted per applicant; duplicates will be rejected.
All completed pre-applications received by 5 pm Dec 6, 2018, will be randomly sequenced by a lottery number. There is no advantage to submitting this form early. Additionally, there is a residency preference for applicants that live or work in the jurisdiction of the program.
If you have any questions, you may contact us:
