The Housing Authority of the City of Alameda will open the Wait List for the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8 Tenant-Based Voucher) Program and begin accepting applications on Thursday, January 29, 2015 at 10:00a.m. PST. It will stop accepting applications on Tuesday, February 3, 2015 at 9:59 a.m. PST.

To better serve applicants and to make the application process available to all, the entire application process is available online at www.waitlistcheck.com/CA955. The application has difficulties with Internet Explorer 9 or below. Please use Internet Explorer 10 or higher or another browser such as Firefox or Chrome.

NO PAPER VERSIONS OF THE APPLICATIONS WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE RANDOM LOTTERY PROCESS. YOU MUST COMPLETE THE APPLICATION ONLINE. If you are unable to submit, please try again until you receive a confirmation number.

Instructions regarding obtaining status information are provided during the online application process.

Applications can only be submitted online.

If an individual with disabilities is unable to complete the online application, accommodations for persons with disabilities will be provided, but must be requested in advance by e-mailing RA@alamedahsg.org or sending a written request to P.O. Box 3199, 1415 Webster St., Alameda, CA 94501. Requests for reasonable accommodations must be received by January 31, 2015 and should include the verification from a knowledgeable professional. The verification should specify the nexus (relationship) between the disability and inability to participate in the online application process, but does not need to contain specific medical information. There are also 14 Application Centers that will have volunteers to assist persons with disabilities. The reasonable accommodation process will NOT allow persons with disabilities to bypass the random lottery selection for placement on the Wait List, and it will NOT allow applications to be accepted outside the opening dates of January 29, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. PST to February 3, 2015 at 9:59 a.m. PST.

Applicants can only apply during the period the list is open for applications.

Applicants can use any device with Internet access to complete the application including mobile phones and tablets. A confirmation receipt is issued immediately after the application is submitted. An e-mail address is required to apply.

No other waitlists are open at this time.
