    Hi there--

    All you have to do is contact the housing authority who handles your current Section 8 benefits. Inform them that you are looking to move to the Bay Area. If you have what is called tenant-based assistance, they have to contact the housing authority that covers the area you wish to move to and, as far as I understand, that housing authority has to issue you benefits. If, however, you have project-based assistance, meaning that your Section 8 benefits are attached to your housing unit as opposed to you, then you would lose your benefits if you move. This does not mean that you cannot reapply for benefits in the Bay Area, but you will most likely be faced with waiting lists, etc.

    I hope this helps. And best of luck!! I hope it works out for you.

    i am not certain if every state has special provisions for your section 8 housing but in many states instead of signing up for a waiting list for major cities, sign up for a suburb.

    the suburbs waiting list a are a lot shorter. if you have a suburb that is influential, they may have a really short waiting list because they dont have the need in their community for section 8 housing.

    i havent been to the bay area in years and i am certain a lot has changed, but do they have some affluent suburbs that this may work for you?
