The Housing Authority of the City of Alameda (AHA) has open wait lists for both the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program and Project-Based Voucher (PBV) program. The PBV wait lists are for physical units located in the City of Alameda only. AHA encourages all to apply for the housing wait lists but the household must meet some eligibility criteria. 
The online application for the housing wait list is open starting Friday, September 10th, 2021 at 8:30am and will remain open thru Monday September 20th, 2021 at 12:00pm.

The following wait lists are open from September 10, 2021 at 8:30 a.m. PDT to noon on September 20, 2021:

Housing Choice Voucher (called S8 on the pre-applications, so listed last)
Project-Based Voucher for units at Alameda Point Collaborative
Project-Based Voucher for units for Seniors
Project-Based Voucher for Families eligible for units sized 0- to 2-bedrooms
Project-Based Voucher for Families eligible for units sized over 3-bedrooms

After applicants have successfully completed the application online, applicants will receive a confirmation email with instructions for checking application status online. Only one application per household will be accepted. Applications that are incomplete or are duplicate applications will be rejected. Please remember the wait list application can only be completed online so you will need an email address to apply.
There is no need to visit the Housing Authority of the City of Alameda offices regarding the housing wait list since the application is online only.
For more information on the number of families being added to each wait list, please see our FAQs.  The Housing Choice Voucher wait list is for a tenant-based voucher where the applicant will be responsible for finding a unit to rent.  The Project-Based Voucher wait lists are for specific units in the City of Alameda and all selected applicants must lease up in the City of Alameda.  

Applications will not be accepted outside of the dates and times above.  Applications are online only and can be accessed at https://recertification.alamedahsg.org/.  Detailed directions to access the application can be found in the FAQs.
