Central Coast News is working with the Housing Authority of Monterey County in order to help you get your questions answered about housing assistance.
The Housing Authority provides several housing programs for individuals and families in Monterey County. The questions center is closed but if you did not get your question answered please contact the Housing Authority at www.hamonterey.org for more information.
Some of the programs available are:
Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Program- This program combines rental assistance for homeless veterans with case management and clinical services provided by the Veterans Affairs and its medical center.
Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher-The housing choice voucher program is the federal government's major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market
Family Self-Sufficiency Program- This program offers an incentive savings account to families when they initially begin employment. When any pay increases are obtained, the difference between the base client rent and the increase rent is deposited into an interest bearing savings account.
Special Needs Housing- The Authority has built or acquired 423 units of senior housing, 610 units for families, 84 units for disabled individuals, and 35 units which are wheel chair accessible.
Migrant and Farm Worker Housing-The Authority operates Migrant and Permanent Farm Labor units for a total of 215 housing units for this targeted population.
Pueblo Del Mar Transitional Housing Program- Pueblo Del Mar includes 56 houses on a 2.5 acre site at the former Fort Ord in the City of Marina. The program gives homeless families who have completed a residential recovery program, or who can document they have participated in a 12-step Sobriety Program for at least three months, the opportunity for a new start.
