Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How do I place my name on the Affordable Housing waiting list?
    The Affordable Housing waiting list is open. Turn in a complete application to the Housing Authority office to be placed on the waiting list for the next available unit.
  2. How long will it take for me to reach the top of the waiting list?
    It is not possible to predict how long it will take for someone to get to the top of the waiting list. The wait depends on the rate current tenants move out of the Affordable Housing Unit. The waiting list is organized by date and time of application.
  3. How can I check my status on the waiting list?
    You can contact the Housing Authority front desk at (530) 671-0220 to check the status of your application.
  4. What happens when my name reaches the top of the waiting list?
    You will receive a letter informing you that your name has reached the top of the waiting list and that the Housing Authority is ready to begin the application process. You will be asked to complete a Personal Declaration Form and return it to our office along with various supporting documents.
  5. What happens if I do not receive the application appointment letter?
    It is important for you to inform the Housing Authority of all address changes while your name is on the waiting list. If you fail to respond because you did not receive the letter or if the letter is returned as "undeliverable", the Housing Authority will proceed down the list and remove your name from the waiting list. If you have any changes, submit an Applicant Change Form within 10 days.
