The Sonoma County Housing Authority will accept applications for three-bedroom Project-Based Voucher waitlists from July 1 through July 31. The waitlists will be for Extremely Low Income, at or below 30 percent area median income, three-bedroom Project-Based Voucher units only. 

Applicants will be required to provide information regarding income and any preferences for which they may qualify. To qualify, a family of four would have to make $41,500 or less per year. Applications will be accepted for three-bedroom Project-Based Vouchers units at the following locations:

  • Alta Madrone Apartments in Sonoma
  • Fetters Apartments in Sonoma
  • Logan Place in Petaluma
  • Crossroads Apartments in Santa Rosa
  • Fife Creek Commons in Guerneville
  • Windsor Redwoods Apartments in Windsor
  • The Randall Apartments in Healdsburg

Those interested in applying to any of the above-listed Project-Based Voucher waitlist lotteries must apply during this application period. Applicants must indicate which list they are applying for on their application

Income-eligible applicants must submit an application during this application period only. No application will be accepted prior to the July 1 opening. Applications are due no later than Wednesday, July 31, by 5 p.m. if submitted in person at the Housing Authority’s offices, or by 11:59 p.m. if submitted online. 

Beginning July. 1, applications may be completed online at or in person at the Housing Authority's offices, located at 1440 Guerneville Road in Santa Rosa. Offices are open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The three-bedroom unit waitlists adhere to the Housing Authority’s subsidy standards and reasonable accommodation policy, typically assigned to households of five to seven people. If your household does not meet the criteria for income or household size requirements for these lists, you may apply to additional Project Based Voucher waitlist lotteries (various bedroom sizes and income limits throughout the county) which will be open in the coming months.

The Sonoma County Housing Choice Voucher waitlist is currently closed, we do not anticipate reopening it until the end of 2025. An application for a project-based voucher unit will not result in an applicant being placed on the general Housing Choice Voucher waitlist.

The Housing Authority reminds the public that fees-for-service or credit card numbers are never collected when applying to Housing Choice Voucher or Project-Based Voucher Waitlists. Scammers often create fraudulent websites that look authentic and make such requests for payment. Please be wary. Their names may say “Section 8” and they may show an Equal Housing Opportunity logo. Such sites will take the applicant’s money and sell their personal information.

If you find a website that seems fraudulent, please file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The only legitimate website to apply to the Sonoma County Housing Authority Housing Choice Voucher Waitlist Lottery is
