Welcome to the City of Napa and the Housing Authority of the City of Napa Waiting List Lottery.

Depending on the household's position on the waiting list, the time on the waiting list may be up to two years or longer. HACN cannot guarantee that households will receive assistance as funding for the program is not guaranteed. If your household is selected to receive a Housing Choice Voucher, you will be required to secure housing on the open market. Names will be pulled from a Project Based Voucher waiting list as units become vacant in that apartment complex. Applicants must meet income guidelines (PDF) for their family size.

The Housing Authority conducts a background check regarding participation in drug-related or violent criminal activity and sexual offenses by applicants. Current HUD regulations deny admittance to the program for applicants who have participated in certain drug-related or violent criminal activity and sexual offenses. If the applicant family owes the Housing Authority of the City of Napa money from past participation in the program, the entire amount must be repaid before admittance to the Waiting List is approved. 

Reporting Changes

If you have a change of mailing address or any changes in your circumstances, it is very important that you notify the Housing Authority in writing to avoid being removed from the waiting list as the Housing Authority is not responsible for mail delays or forwarding orders.

You may report your changes by U.S mail or email.

 Email- please email us the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Date
  • Phone number
  • Last four digits of your Social Security number
  • New address/ details of your change


You may also print the online form HERE. This is a Change of Address/Information form ONLY for individuals and families who are currently on the waiting list. Do not fill out this form unless you are already on the waiting list.
