I have just submitted my application, how long will I have to wait for help?
-There is not a simple answer to this question because an applicant's wait list will depend upon the preferences they qualify for, date and time of their application in addition to availability of housing units/assistance. In general, an applicant's wait for assisted housing is usually several years. You are encouraged to visit www.waitlistcheck.com where you are able to check your status and update your contact information.

Where am I on the waiting list?
-Vallejo Housing Authority does not give applicants a specific waiting list number. This is because your position on Vallejo Housing Authority's waiting lists may change depending on preference changes from other applicants and as other applicants are removed from the waiting lists. You are encouraged to visit www.waitlistcheck.com where you are able to check your status and update your contact information.

Do I have to be a Vallejo resident to be assisted?
-No. However, Vallejo Housing Authority does give a preference to those persons on the waiting list who are living or working in Vallejo.

I am a person with disabilities, will I get housing more quickly?
-Persons with disabilities will be assisted before non-disabled single persons under the age of 62.

I am a veteran of the U.S. military. Will this help me obtain housing?
-Yes. With proper verification, a veteran, spouse or widow of a veteran, will be granted an additional preference.

Do you have emergency housing or emergency assistance?
-No. Federally subsidized housing is not an entitlement program like other forms of public assistance. That is, even though you may be eligible for and in need of housing assistance, there are not enough funds to assist everyone who qualifies. This is why the waiting lists and the wait is so long.

I have a property owner who is willing to rent to me under the Housing Choice Voucher program, can I get a voucher immediately?
-Vallejo Housing Authority cannot give a preference to applicants who are "in-place", meaning they are living in a unit where the owner accepts Housing Choice Voucher participants.

I am homeless can you help me?
-Unfortunately, Vallejo Housing Authority does not have emergency housing or subsidy available. We will refer you to agencies that provide emergency shelter and assistance, information is available in the Lobby of the Vallejo Housing Authority.

My family may be evicted, how can you help?
-Again, unfortunately, Vallejo Housing Authority does not operate emergency housing or emergency subsidy. We were established to provide long-term affordable rental housing. Additionally, we are required to provide housing assistance to families according to local and federal preferences, date and time of application.
