Housing Choice Voucher Program waiting list to open

The housing authorities of the City of Fresno and Fresno County will soon be accepting pre-applications online for the Housing Choice Voucher Programs—a program that provides low income families with rental assistance for decent, safe and sanitary housing.

The waiting list will open on July 23 at 10 a.m. with no charge to submit an application.

Applicants will be able to apply for either the city or county programs.

Families will be placed on a preliminary list and pulled to establish a waiting list. When funding is available, pre-applications will be randomly selected using a lottery system. Each household may only apply once for the lottery. Pre-applications will not be pulled in date and time order when establishing a waiting list.

Eligible applicants must be income eligible and pass a criminal background check at the time they are pulled from the waiting list.

Pre-applications must be submitted online at fresnohousing.org. For the online application, click on Quality Housing, Housing Choice Vouchers and HCV Online Applications, which is under the HCV tab. Applicants will receive a confirmation number when applying online.

If an applicant has a disability and requires a reasonable accommodation or has extenuating circumstances that prevent them from applying online, paper applications are also available.

No duplicate applications will be accepted.

The Program is federally funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
