With the San Diego housing market on the rise in recent months, affordable housing seems more challenging to find than ever before. The good news is that there are several agencies and organizations that can help walk anyone through the process to finding a home that works for their budget.
Call 211 to receive the addresses and phone numbers of each city housing authority. The First Step to being placed on Affordable Housing Lists is to contact the City Housing Authority. You will need to go to each City Housing Authority where you are willing to live. Each City Housing Authority will collect information from you regarding your income, employment, credit history, rental history, etc. They will then enter you on their list for potential receipt of a housing voucher. That voucher will determine how much of the rent can be covered, in which city, and in which apartment communities affordable housing is offered.
