Santa Barbara, CA, May 16, 2022 – The Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara (HACSB) announces a limited waitlist opening for its Section 8 Voucher Program. The waitlist will be extended to June 17, 2022.
Section 8 Vouchers are issued to qualifying applicants allowing them to choose a unit to rent from private landlords. Participants pay a portion of their income toward rent, directly to the landlord, and the remainder of the contract rent is paid to the landlord by the Housing Authority.

“This is a real opportunity for those in need of affordable housing. We are we very aware of the local housing crisis and the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program can be an important part of the solution,” said Rob Fredericks, Executive Director/CEO of HACSB.
