SHRA administers the Housing Choice Voucher program and other rental assistance programs in Sacramento County and serves approximately 12,900 families each month by paying housing assistance payments (HAP) to landlords on behalf of eligible participants. As part of the HCV program, the tenant pays approximately 30 percent of their income towards rent and the remainder is paid by United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds directly to the landlord. During open application periods, applications will be accepted at www.sacwaitlist.com. Attached is a link to the Administrative Plan required by HUD for additional information about the program. City and County HCV Administrative Plan
