Rental Assistance (Section 8)

About the Program

The Housing Authority of the City of Napa (HACN) administers rental assistance programs throughout the City for low-income seniors, families, and persons with disabilities. Housing Division staff assure that Section 8 assisted housing is safe and of quality by requiring owners to meet Housing Quality Standards and local code.

The Section 8 Rental Assistance Program is designed to assist eligible low-income families throughout Napa County. The Section 8 program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The purpose of the program is to provide rental subsidy to very low-income families.

Rent Payments

A portion of the family's monthly rent is paid in the form of a subsidy directly to the landlord by the Housing Authority. Participants pay approximately thirty percent of their adjusted gross income to the landlord for rent. The balance of the rent is paid by the Housing Authority.
