Housing Authority of the City of National City Section 8 HCV Waiting List : Open Indefinitely

This information was last updated on April 5th, 2016.

The Housing Authority of the City of National City (HACNC) Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting list is currently open. This waiting list is open indefinitely.

Please note: According to the HACNC, this waiting list is only open, "for eligible low-income households and seniors that either live or work in National City." This information is incorrect. It is against HUD policy to have a residency requirement, unless for extremely rare special circumstances, and these circumstances do not apply to the HACNC. The HACNC Section 8 FAQ page states, "you can apply with the HANC if you do not live or work in National City, however, we must advise you that your application would be placed on the least priority list and the chances of your name coming up in the near future is slim to none. We can, upon written request, transfer your application to the proper Housing Authority in San Diego County, so that your application is given the proper residency preference. For further information, please call (619) 336-4254."

There are two ways to apply

  1. Download a print the pre-application on the HACNC website. The pre-application is available in English and Spanish. The links can be found in the middle of the page, titled "Application in English" and "Application in Spanish."
  2. Call the HACNC office at (619) 336-4254 from 7:00 am until 6:00 pm PT, Monday-Thursday, to have a pre-application mailed to you.
The HACNC has identified the following preferences: Live or work in National City, families with children, disabled, elderly (62+).

Once the pre-application has been completed, it can be mailed or hand delivered tto the HACNC office, located at 140 E. 12th Street, Suite B, National City, CA 91950, during normal office hours.

Important note: Applicants who have been placed on the waiting list must inform the housing authority immediately if your application information changes (such as contact information, income, and household members). In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list. Contact the housing authority to find out how to update application information.

The estimated wait time to receive a voucher is 6-8 years.

Please visit the Section 8 FAQ page to find out how to update you pre-application.
