Section 8 Program
The San Mateo County Housing Authority offers Section 8 rental assistance to qualified low-income families.
There is a waiting list for applicants. The Housing Authority can be reached at (650) 802-3300 between the hours of 8:00am and 5:00pm on weekdays.
Under Section 8, 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 Section 8 Program.
