Apply for Housing

Thank you for your interest in finding housing at EBALDC. We currently manage 20 properties in the cities of Oakland, Emeryville, Richmond and San Pablo providing quality, safe and affordable homes for moderate, low and extremely low income residents.

EBALDC has a pre-application process which is different for our Below Market Rate (BMR) units, for our subsidized Project Based Voucher (PBV) units and also when we are leasing up a brand new building. When a waitlist or interest list opens, where to pick up and how to return the pre-application for that opening will be publically announced and posted on this web site.

Pre-applications are normally available to access or download on this web page. Depending on the opening, pre-applications may be:

  • Accessed and submitted online only
  • Downloaded from this website and/or picked up at the property site only
  • Returned in person or by mail only

All requests for reasonable accommodations will be considered.
The process and eligibility requirements do differ by list opening/building so please take note of individual announcements.


Announcements

2017 Project Based Voucher Waitlist Opening

The 2017 Project Based Voucher wait lists are for EBALDC units where rents are subsidized by the County and/or City Housing Authority.

THE DEADLINE (11/17/17 AT 4:00PM) TO SUBMIT A PRE-APPLICATION IS OVER.
THE 2017 PROJECT BASED VOUCHER WAITLIST ACCEPTANCE PERIOD IS NOW CLOSED.

If you submitted a pre-application during the open period, the next steps are for each property to:

  • Identify and data enter on all eligible, completed pre-applications.
  • Submit all pre-apps identified as eligible and complete into a lottery process.
  • Place pre-apps with lottery numbers 1-500 onto the waitlist for: Effie’s House, Marcus Garvey Commons, Lillie Mae Jones & Seven Directions.
  • Place pre-apps with lottery numbers 1-1,000 onto the waitlist for: California Hotel.
  • Notify by mail all pre-applicants who have been accepted and are active on waitlist(s).
  • Notify by mail all other pre-applicants who have not been accepted onto the PBV waitlist(s).
  • Notify by mail all applicants whose pre-application was received after the deadline that they were not included in the waitlist(s).
  • Once the above is complete, property managers will contact pre-applicants on the waitlist(s) when there are PBV vacancies to begin the formal application and leasing process.

The above process will take approximately 8 weeks during which time staff will not be able to give verification on the status of your pre-application. Updates to pre-app information will not be accepted until the above process is complete for each site.
