Upcoming Vacancies

The City of Santa Rosa is conducting a recruitment to fill two upcoming Tenant Commissioner vacancies on the Housing Authority Board of Commissioners. To serve as a Tenant Commissioner, you must live within the Santa Rosa City Limits, be a Santa Rosa Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) participant in good standing with the program, and be registered to vote. Attendance at the monthly public meetings is required, and Commissioners are expected to review all the Agenda materials prior to each meeting. Previous experience on a public board or commission is not required.

Service as a Tenant Commissioner is strictly voluntary, and filing an application is not a requirement of the Housing Choice Voucher program.

Apply online here. If you choose to file a paper application, it must be returned to the HCS front counter in the City Hall Annex or P O Box 1806, Santa Rosa, CA 95402 by November 2, 2017. Paper applications are available at the HCS front counter at 90 Santa Rosa Avenue.

Applications must be submitted in our office or online by Thursday, November 2nd, 2017.

For more information, please visit srcity.org/section8 or contact Sara Roberts, Recording Secretary at sroberts@srcity.org or 707-543-3933.


The purpose of the Housing Authority is to ensure adequate, decent, safe and sanitary housing for qualified people within Santa Rosa consistent with federal, state and local laws. The Housing Authority 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.

Key objectives include:
  • Administer contracts with developers of new affordable units pursuant to the Housing Allocation Plan.
  • Commit funds to developers of new affordable units
  • Provide rental assistance to approximately 2,000 families with the funds allocated by HUD to the City of Santa Rosa.
