About the Program

The Housing Authority of the City of Napa (HACN) administers rental assistance programs throughout the County for low-income seniors, families, and persons with disabilities. The City of Napa administers Tenant Based Rental Assistance within the City for income qualified households.  Both the City and Housing Authority ensure that assisted housing units meet Housing Quality Standards and local code.

The Section 8 program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The purpose of the programs are 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 City or Housing Authority. Participants pay approximately thirty percent of their adjusted gross incomes to the landlords for rent. The balance of the rent is paid by the City or Housing Authority.
