APPLICATION PROCESS

The City of San Buenaventura Housing Authority currently maintains an open waiting list with approximately 2300 applicants. A self-certified pre-application is required in order to be placed on the waiting list. The Housing Authority accepts applications only from individuals who are at least 18 years of age or emancipated by state law.

Prior to being assisted, applicants are contacted to determine final eligibility based on income, family composition, proof of immigration status and a clear criminal background check.

Triad Properties: The HA owns and manages some scattered site properties which are considered (non-HUD). Availability is based on vacancy openings. Rents do not exceed current Fair Market Rents (FMR) and are deemed reasonable by local standards. The Housing Authority completes tenant selection and screening. Annual income restrictions are based on individual properties. Vacancies are posted when available. Age restrictions may apply on some units.

Chapel Lane Senior Apartments: Located at the same location of the Section 8 office, this apartment complex houses persons who must be at least 62 years-old. One and two bedroom apartments are available based on vacancy. Tenant rent is based on 30 percent of the monthly adjusted income.

SOHO Apartments: The SOHO Apartments, owned by SOHO Associates, LP, and managed by the Housing Authority of the City of San Buenaventura, offers qualified employees of the city, county and Ventura Unified School District a preference when applying to live at SOHO.  This building's goal is to promote affordable housing for Ventura's workforce.  In addition to a general landlord review, applicants for SOHO must meet requirements for the Section 42 Low Income Tax Credit program, which limits occupants to an annual income level. Depending on the specific apartment, annual household income is limited to either 25, 35 or 50 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI).

Encano Del Mar: Located on the corner of Oak and Thompson Boulevard, Encanto Del Mar is a 37-unit project built by the Housing Authority of the City of San Buenaventura. The development consists of 6 one-bedroom; 18 two-bedroom; and 12 three-bedroom apartments with an on-site manager's apartment and a community building.  Preference is given to downtown retail and service workers.  Designated for large families, the site is close to public parks, transportation, shopping, schools, a medical clinic and Downtown Ventura.
