Be aware that most listings for affordable housing have waiting lists. We encourage you to apply to as many as possible so we hope you will check the website once a month for new listings. To obtain an application contact the property manager or go to the property management office.
Frequently Asked Questions
Under the project-based voucher program, a PHA (Public Housing Agency or Housing Authority) enters into an assistance contract with the owner (local developers) for specified units and for a specified term. The PHA refers families from its waiting list to the project owner to fill vacancies. Because the assistance is tied to the unit, a family who moves from the project-based unit does not have any right to continued housing assistance when they leave the unit. However, they may be eligible for a tenant based voucher when one becomes available. Several developers in Berekeley are contracted to have Project Based units in their buildings and the BHA maintains a waiting list for those Project Based Units.
