How to Apply
Notice to Potential Applicants:
Applications for the Section 8 Program can ONLY be accepted after the Housing Authority has announced that the "Waiting List" is "Open". When Vernon Housing Authority opens the waiting list, it will be announced on this website, advertised through public notice in the local newspaper and at 2-1-1.

The Section 8 program is a federally-funded program that provides rental assistance for very low-income families in the private rental market. The Housing Authority and the program participant each pay a portion of the rent to the Owner of the property.

VOUCHER HOLDERS select a unit from the private rental market. Rental assistance makes market rate housing affordable. Assistance is based on a formula, but program participants normally pay no more than 40% of adjusted monthly income toward rent and utilities.
