How do I apply for affordable housing?

Each property with below market rate rental units has its own individual housing application.  

Contact the property first to confirm that there are available rental units or an open waitlist before submitting the application form. Ensure that you meet the eligibility requirements for the specific property. Eligibility can be based on factors such as income, senior status (over age 62 or 65), household size, and recent criminal history. Be prepared to provide documentation verifying your eligibility. Once you have applied for a specific property or rental unit, it is important to maintain contact with the property manager on the status of your application or placement on the waiting list.  

Contact Marin Housing Authority for information on the waitlist and application for Housing Choice Vouchers (Section 8).
