Oakland california section 8 wait list set to open

Oakland Housing Authority is opening it’s wait list and is expecting a huge response. It’s estimated as many as 100,000 people will apply just for the wait list, so of course I want to be the first to break this news to those seeking section 8 housing assistance.

Here’s the Facts:

– About 10,000 people will make it on the wait list.
– More than 11,000 Oakland families currently receive Section 8 subsidies
– A family of three, for example, whose annual income does not exceed $40,650 could qualify, they would be responsible for paying 30 percent of their monthly income for rent and the voucher would make up the rest.
– Section 8 Housing application will only be accepted online at www.oakha.org beginning at 8 a.m. Jan 25.
– Deadline to apply for Section 8 in Oakland California is 5 p.m. Jan 29, 2011
