County of San Mateo Housing
Section 8 Program- Moving To Work Program
The Housing Authority of San Mateo County offers Section 8 rental assistance to qualified low-income families.
The Housing Authority of San Mateo County is accepting pre-applications at www.smchousingwaitlist.org. The interest list is not established based on date and time of the application. Periodically, as vouchers become available, names will be randomly selected from the interest list.
Under the Moving To Work Program, a portion of your monthly rent will be paid directly to your landlord. You may choose your own place to live. The unit you choose must meet housing quality standards, fair market rent limits, and the landlord must agree to also participate in the Program. In addition, the Moving To Work Program provides case management services and other supportive services to program participants. The Moving To Work Program has a five (5) year time limit.
