Yolo County Housing will accept online applications for housing wait lists beginning at 8 a.m. Monday through 5 p.m. Thursday, May 26. The wait list may be closed earlier, depending on the volume of applications received.

Wait lists will be open for the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8), Project-Based Voucher, Public Housing, Cottonwood Meadows Senior Complex and USDA Farm Labor Housing. Applicants should apply only once for each program for which they are eligible.

Applicants need to have the name, date of birth and Social Security number of all household members, as well as income and asset information for all household members. When the application is complete, applicants should print or save the confirmation page as a receipt for their records.
