All the public housing wait lists give “preference” or priority to families that are veterans or displaced. Documentation showing that the family meets this priority must be provided when the family’s eligibility is reviewed.


Preferences:

Homeless Preference with Services:

Homeless Preference with Services is given to families or individuals who are homeless and receiving homeless services through a local organization. (for the City Housing Authority wait lists only: Elderly Only, City Housing, Alder Grove, Marina Vista)



Homeless Preference (without services):

Homeless Preference (without services) is given to families or individuals who:
  • sleep in a place not made for sleeping (like a car or in the park or on the sidewalk), or
  • sleep in a shelter or temporary hotel/motel, or
  • are just released from jail/prison/hospital where they lived for less than 90 days and they were sleeping in a place not made for sleeping or were sleeping in a shelter immediately before that, or
  • are losing their housing within the next 14 days and have not found another place live, or
  • are under 25 years and have not had a lease or agreement for housing for the past 60 days and have moved two or more times during this 60 day time period, or
  • have children (under the age of 25) and have not had a lease or agreement for housing for the past 60 days and have moved two or more times during this 60 day time period, or
  • are running away from domestic violence or a situation where someone is threatening to hurt them.
(for the City Housing Authority wait lists only: Elderly Only, City Housing, Alder Grove, Marina Vista)


Veteran Preference

Veteran preference is given to families with a person who has served in the active military, reserves or National Guard who was called to active duty by a federal order of the United States at any time and who shall have been discharged or released there from under conditions other than dishonorable.



Displaced Families

Families displaced by a natural disaster recognized by the Federal government (i.e. flood, earthquake, and fire) will be granted this preference. Displaced by government action also includes families wishing to reside in Public Housing who were displaced (subsidy ended or otherwise insufficient) from the Housing Choice Voucher program due to lack of federal funding or sequestration.



Updating Your Application

Applicants that are on a wait list must notify the Housing Authority of any changes to the family information that was submitted on their HCV or Public Housing pre-application within 30 days of the change. Changes such as address, email address, family composition, and preferences must all be reported to ensure that you receive notification when you are selected from the wait list, and to ensure you are selected for the correct bedroom size so that your application process can be completed.

To report a change, please complete a Pre-Application Update Form, which is available for download from www.shra.org.
