This is the top of the page that shows on all of the pages on this website other than on PDF files. This header has five small pictures and a logo for the Housing Authority. First on the left top of the page is a small picture of a woman wearing a red blouse with her arm over a young woman who has long hair. Behind them is a one story house with red trim and brownish paint. Next to this picture is the logo: it says in blue lettering Housing Authority (carriage return) of Yamhill County | below that is a red pitch of a roof with only the pitch and chimney showing - it's a graphic. Below that is in bolder blue lettering with the letters in all caps HAYC.  Next to the logo is a small picture of five children in a huddle. The photo is taken from beneath looking up at their faces.  The next picture, the third one, is of a white set of housing complexes with a cement walkway leading to the one in the back.  The fourth picture is of a class going on. You can see in the foreground someone with a pen in her hand writing on a paper with a book of some kind open in front then you see people sitting looking away toward someone in the background leading the class who is writing on some kind of white board. The last picture in this header is the side of a two story apartment complex that is white with light blue trim, you can see shrubs and a few trees also. Below this header on the left side of all the pages (except pdf pages) are menus that will take you to various pages - some of these menus drop down to the right with a mouse positioned over the menu item if there are subcategories. Each one is a link to either a page or a pdf file. Below the menus is a search box where you can search text on this site including inside pdf files.

Rental Assistance Program

Our rental assistance program is officially called the "Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program." People who participate in this program receive what are commonly called "Section 8" vouchers. This program assists over 1,300 families in Yamhill County.

Section 8 Waitlist Application

Please note:  Access to caseworkers may be limited Wednesdays from 8am to noon.  Thank you for your patience.

Our Section 8 wait list is curently 3-4 years.

The HCV Program allows eligible families to find their own rental unit in the private housing market. The family pays a portion of the rent and utilities (equal to 30 percent of their adjusted monthly income), and the Housing Authority pays the balance. Both our payments and the tenant's are made directly to the landlord. The Housing Authority has a contract with HUD, which provides funding for the program. The Section 8 HCV program is HUD's largest housing program nationwide.

The goal of the Section 8 HCV program is to give people access to private market housing in a situation as close to an unsubsidized tenancy as possible. Landlords choose to whom they rent and can use their own lease (see our landlord page for more information). We pay the rent as long as the tenant lives in the unit and is eligible, and the rest of the tenancy is between the landlord and the tenant.

If you are currently participating as a landlord or a tenant, you can download forms and informational material from our website. You can also view a copy of our current Section 8 Newsletter.

Our HCV Program includes exciting additional opportunities for eligible current tenants, such as the Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) Program, and the Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership (HCVH) Program. The FSS program offers ideas, resources and support to work toward self-sufficiency and the dream of home ownership, whereas HCVH is a specific Home Ownership program within the HCV Program.
