Housing and Community Development

ABOUT

The Housing and Community Development Division under the City Manager's Office  is home to the Vallejo Housing Authority (VHA), which administers the federally-funded Housing Choice Voucher (formerly know as Section 8) Program and its subprograms - Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing, Family Self-Sufficiency,  Homeownership Voucher, and Project-Based Voucher Programs.

The Housing and Community Development Division also coordinates the application and implementation of grants provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), namely the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program, HOME Investment Partnerships Program, and the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). 

The Division coordinates City services for the homeless and a representative serves on the boards of the Community Action Partnership Solano Joint Powers Authority and Housing First Solano to bring more homeless services to Vallejo. The Division also  provides staff support to the Housing and Community Development Commission
