Waitlist now open for Section 8 Apts

The Redwoods is accepting, in person or through the mail, Preliminary Applications Monday through Friday from 9:00am – 4:00pm on August 2, 2021 through August 31, 2021 for its Section 8 Waitlist. As long as the Preliminary Application is submitted within the stated timeframe, the timing of the Preliminary Application submission will have no effect on whether the applicant will be offered assistance.

This Waitlist is for subsidized, one-bedroom rental units only. To qualify, the applicant must be 62 years or older. To prevent over-crowding, households should be no larger than two people. The Redwoods will impose the following preference for the Waitlist:

Application materials are available in Spanish upon request. Due to limited availability, a lottery system will be used to select which applicants will be placed on the Waitlist.
