Description

The City of Pomona Housing Authority provides rental assistance to qualifying families and individuals through its Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV). This program allows very low-income families to access affordable housing within the City limits.

The Section-8 Rental Assistance Program is a Federally funded program established by the 1974 Housing And Community Development Act to assist very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market. Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to select eligible housing, including apartments, townhouses and single-family homes.

How to Apply

PROGRAM CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS. CLOSED INDEFINITELY. Call 909-620-2368 for updates.

Applications for the Section 8 program are accepted only during specific application periods. These application periods are publicized through the local newspaper, the City website, the City of Pomona's Kiosk Information System and other public venues. All the details for how to apply are included. Only during this publicized period may you request and submit an application to the Housing Authority for this program. When you submit your application it will be time and date stamped and you will be placed on a waiting list accordingly to date and time received.

Since the demand for housing assistance often exceeds the limited resources available, long waiting periods are common. There is no way to determine how long you will be on the Section 8 waiting list. Names are taken in the order in which they are received. Once your name is reached on the waiting list, Housing Authority will contact you. Your eligibility status will be re-determined at that time and if you are eligible you will receive a Housing Choice Voucher.

Applications were last made available in the Summer of 2014 and will not be made available for another 5 - 6 years.
