Santa Rosa Housing Authority

The Santa Rosa Housing Authority (SRHA) was established in 1971 with the purpose of ensuring adequate, decent, safe, and sanitary housing for income-eligible households in Santa Rosa. The SRHA primarily consists of the Santa Rosa Housing Trust and Rental Housing Assistance programs, both of which are responsible for improving the quality and affordability of housing in the City. 

The Santa Rosa Housing Trust partners with many private and non-profit organizations to develop, rehabilitate, and preserve affordable housing and to convert market rate housing to affordable housing. Through the Trust, the SRHA has supported the creation of approximately 5,000 affordable units, representing $120 million invested in affordable housing in Santa Rosa. 

Through the Rental Housing Assistance program, which includes the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher, Project-Based Voucher, and HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) programs, the SRHA administers monthly housing assistance payments for more than 2,000 households in Santa Rosa. This includes vouchers for low-income individuals and families, veterans, people experiencing homelessness and disaster survivors.
