After you create an account by using your birthday and social security number or password, you will be able to submit your application on-line. After you submit your pre-application, you will receive an e-mail confirmation that you have applied for the 2022 HCV Waiting List.
If you submit a paper pre-application, the paper pre-application will be used by the Housing Authority staff to create your Waiting List pre-application in the Housing Authority’s software.
Following the closing of the pre-application period (on Tuesday, May 31, 2022 at 11:59PM (Pacific Standard Time)), pre-applications will be selected for the 2022 HCV Waiting List using a computerized, random selection lottery process. Once the lottery is complete, the applicants who have been randomly assigned numbers 1 – 7,500 will be placed on the 2022 HCV Waiting List. The remaining pre-applications will be rejected without the opportunity for an appeal. Pre-applications of applicants who are not one of the 7,500 applicants selected for the 2022 HCV Waiting List shall be rejected and shall not have any further right to or entitlement to be listed on the 2022 HCV Waiting List nor shall they have any further right or entitlement to participate in future selections from the 2022 HCV Waiting List created under this opening.
Notice will be sent by mail and e-mail to all applicants informing them if they have or have not been selected through the lottery process to be placed on the 2022 HCV Waiting List. If you were selected, you will receive a notice by mail and e-mail informing you that you were selected for the 2022 HCV Waiting List.
If you were not selected, you will receive a notice by mail and e-mail informing you that were not selected. You will be eligible to reapply for housing assistance when the Waiting List opens again. In the event SAHA opens its Waiting List again in the future, all applicants who were not selected and who want to be considered in the future must apply again in accordance with the terms outlined in such future openings of the Waiting List. Periodically check the SAHA website to find out when our Waiting List will open again. After the lottery is conducted, SAHA will send letters to schedule interviews to the top applicants on the Waiting List based off the amount of available funding and the turnover rate for the HCV Program.
