Request Section 8 from Yakima Housing Authority Effortlessly

Yakima Housing Authority is glad to participate in HUD's Move to Work Program. Through the program financed by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Yakima Housing Authority (YHA) provides rental assistance to low-income families in the private rental market. 

Housing has been linked to better life outcomes for children in the past. However, many low-income young families have difficulty obtaining a home in Yakima, and many senior households have difficulty staying in the town where they have lived for years.

Through the voucher program, families can choose their own home, whether a single-family home, townhouse, or apartment, and their local public housing agency will pay their rent. In some cases, they may even be able to use the voucher to purchase a home.

Unfortunately, there is no standardized application process for Section 8 housing assistance. We take care of the heavy lifting for you with DoNotPay's rental assistance offering. Before contacting your local PHA on your behalf to inquire about the waitlist and whether you're eligible, we'll ask you for some basic financial information.

Who Is Eligible for the Yakima Housing Authority? 

An applicant's family must meet the following criteria set by the Yakima Housing Authority to be assessed for eligibility and suitability for the housing program:

  • It has to be a low-income family.
  • Must not have been convicted of a felony in the previous three years.

Those who qualify will pay about 30% of their income in rent and utilities and will be allowed to choose from any landlord that takes Section 8 – Housing Choice Vouchers in the private rental market. That said, at the main office, located at 810 N. 6th Avenue, you can apply for Section 8 housing.

How to Apply for Low-Income Housing From Yakima Housing Authority by Yourself 

The process for applying for a housing unit entails the following: 

  1. The applicant's family fills out an application and is put on the waiting list based on their total preference points and application date/time.
  2. When a unit becomes available, an applicant's family is chosen if they are at the top of the waiting list.
  3. At the time of selection, the applicant's family verifies that the applicant's preferences are still valid and gives the intake certification, necessary papers, and consent forms.
  4. An interview with the applicant's family is scheduled.
  5. Eligibility is determined, and the result and subsequent actions are communicated to the applicant's family.

The Waiting List 

The YHA maintains a centralized waiting list for all of its properties. The waiting list is separated into different categories based on the room size. Please keep in mind that it can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years to reach the top of the waiting list. The waiting list shall be closed only per YHA regulations and procedures requiring a public notification.
