Who Can Apply for Section 8 Housing

The Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDC) Housing Authority assists low-income families and seniors to pay rent to private landlords through the federal Section 8 housing program. To apply, you must call and place your name on a preliminary Section 8 waiting list. When a registrant's name reaches the top of the registration list, application materials are mailed to determine eligibility based on a household's composition and income. Eligible families are then placed on the application list.

Once on the waiting list, information is updated every 60 days in accordance with federal requirements. When funding becomes available, a Section 8 Housing Voucher can be issued.
