Project-Based Voucher Waiting Lists
The Housing Choice Voucher program offers two housing options: the tenant-based and project-based. The tenant-based program allows assisted households to use a voucher at open rental markets units. Project-based voucher waiting lists are open for those who live or work in Anaheim. The program offers rental housing options at specific housing locations. You may you apply for all the buildings that meet your family's needs. See tabs below for specific building descriptions and to apply to the waiting lists.
Multifamily and Senior Projects
PBV housing locations offer a variety of housing options. Some buildings are intended for families, while others are age restricted, intended for seniors only. AHA also offers a number of PBV locations that provide amenities and/or services specifically for persons with disabilities. For these buildings, you must contact the referral agency listed by the property in order to be placed on that property-specific waiting list.
To apply for PBV family and senior housing options, complete the online application. You must apply to each housing site that you are interested in by checking the location during the application process. Please remember that the PBV waiting lists below are open only for the Live/Work preference and you must be eligible for that preference to apply.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to qualify for a preference to apply to a PBV waiting list?
Yes. To apply to a regular multifamily and senior building waiting list, you must qualify for the Live/Work preference. You must also provide proof you are eligible for this preference. For example, for persons who state that they live in Anaheim, a rental lease agreement and utility bills are required. To qualify as working in Anaheim, you must be employed or volunteer at least 40 hours per month or participate in an education or job training program in Anaheim.
What apartment size do I qualify for?
Anaheim Housing Authority will approve two people per bedroom. See the chart below for more information on apartment size and your family size.
|Bedroom Size||Minimum Family Size||Maximum Family Size|
Will I still receive assistance if I move from a PBV apartment?
If you are a tenant in good standing and you have lived in your apartment for at least one year, you may be eligible to move with a voucher. The ability to receive a tenant-based voucher when you want to move depends on program funding and if any vouchers are available at that time.
Do I have to pass a credit check at the property?
Yes. Renting a PBV unit is like renting an apartment anywhere else. You must still meet the landlord’s credit, rental history and criminal background criteria. You will also be responsible for paying for credit checks, application fees and security deposit.
Do PBV buildings have any special amenities?
Yes, many buildings have free services to tenants, such as afterschool programs and computer literacy classes.
