How do I apply to live at some of the City’s affordable housing projects?
Announcements to apply for any of the new or existing affordable housing projects will be made at the City’s Housing Hotline at (818) 551-6902 or on the Housing website.
Does the City develop new affordable housing projects?
Yes, the City works with nonprofit and for-profit developers to construct new affordable housing that is separate and different from the Section 8 Affordable Housing Voucher Program. Most of these projects are large scale, new construction projects that take advantage of the Density Bonus incentive program. New construction projects can take between 16-24 months to build.
Can people pay money to obtain a Section 8 voucher and bypass the Waiting List?
No. The Section 8 program is a FREE federal program and it is illegal to sell and buy vouchers. If you are approached by someone promising Section 8 assistance in exchange for money, ignore the request and report the activity to the Glendale Section 8 Fraud Hotline at (818) 548-6442.
Can I apply for Glendale Section 8?
No. The Glendale Section 8 Waiting List has been closed since January 2001.
There are over 2,300 households still on the Waiting List and it is expected to be
closed for several more years.
