The City of Mesa Housing Authority will be accepting pre-applications for the tenant-based Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) online from Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 10 a.m. through Monday, Oct.17 at 5 p.m. This will be a web-based pre-application process.

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), provides rental assistance to low income families by contracting with private owners and subsidizing a portion of the family's monthly rent. The family's portion of the rent is based on their income and generally amounts to no more than 30 percent of their adjusted monthly income on rent, depending on the cost of the unit they select. Applicants are subject to all regulations and policies of the City of Mesa Housing Authority. This is the first time the waitlist has been open in the City of Mesa since May 2013.
