Application Process


Please Note: Our HCV tenant and project based waitlists are currently closed. Only the Public Housing, Encanto Del Mar and Rancho Verde waitlists are open. Please visit "Apply For Housing" to apply.

The City of San Buenaventura Housing Authority currently maintains an open waiting list with APPROXIMATELY 10,000 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 by mail to determine final eligibility based on income, family composition, proof of immigration status and a clear criminal background check.

PLEASE NOTE:  Preference for our waitlist/programs, are given to individuals/families that live or work in the City of Ventura.

Applications are processed and ranked by date and time received. If you are interested in applying, or have any questions regarding our application procedure, please contact our office for further information.
