Rental Assistance Update your application Here

All applicants who were on a waiting list prior to November 7, 2018 have been sent or will be sent a waiting list renewal form.

The form must be returned by April 29, 2019.

  Waiting List Renewal

The primary goal of the Housing Authority of the County of San Diego is to obtain current information on interested applicants and to remove applicants who are no longer interested in being on the Rental Assistance waiting list.

We are required to maintain accurate waiting list information such as address, income, household size and family type. The HACSD will send Waitlist Renewal letters and forms to all the applicants currently on the waiting list requesting each applicant to complete and return the Waitlist Renewal forms in the pre-paid postage envelope provided to maintain their position on the waiting list with the original date and time of application. Failure to return the forms by April 29, 2019 will result in the applicant being removed from the rental assistance waiting list. For additional questions, please see the FAQ or contact 858-694-4801.


If you have not done it before, you can apply for housing assistance  HERE. Only fill out ONE application.

Waiting List

While you are on the waiting list, you need to update your application any time there are changes to your address, family or income.

Your changes will be reviewed and processed within 48 hours after you submit your update.




If you move without updating the address on your waiting list application, you may not receive the important letters we send to you.

If our letter to you is returned to us because you don’t live there anymore, you will be taken off the waiting list.
