Moving for Current Participants
The Housing Authority of the City of Alameda is currently accepting and absorbing portability participants into the City of Alameda. The only exception to this is for VASH families. Participants holding a VASH voucher should speak with the VA Caseworker about using portability. (VASH is a specific program for Military Veterans.)
