Temporary & Longterm Housing
Offers housing in open market rentals. Participants in this program pay rent according to their income and directly from open market landlords. Section 8 is the federal government’s major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled with a subsidized housing option.
Eligibility is determined by the Housing Authority based on the total annual gross income and family size and is limited to U.S. citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status. In general, the family’s income may not exceed 50% of the median income for the county or metropolitan area in which the family chooses to live. Median income levels are published by HUD and vary by location.
Please call 530-895-4474 for more information. Applicants must be adults ages 18 and over. No fee for application. Housing fees vary. Translators available in Hmong and Spanish.
The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Wait List will open on May 9, 2021 at 12:01am and close on May 22, 2021 at 11:59pm. When the Wait List is opened, the Housing Authority of Butte County’s website, http://www.butte-housing.com/ will be updated to include an online application. A large Blue button will be found on the home page directing you to the Online Application. Follow the instructions and submit your application. When completed, you should receive a confirmation number. Make sure you keep this number as you will need it to check your application status. At the end of the waitlist open period, the application will be closed and the application will be removed from the website. There will be no advantage in applying early as the applications are randomly selected.

This number was provided to eligible individuals at the end of their online registration process. Voucher extensions are not granted automatically. The Housing Authority will review each voucher extension request on a case by case basis and any approvals are at the sole discretion of the Housing Authority. If your request is approved, the expiration date of your voucher will be extended by 30 days. Individuals are given a ‘lottery number” or confirmation number. Available 24 hours a day; 7 days a week.

The City of Chico would like to remind those in our neighboring communities who may have been ordered to evacuate and are currently seeking lodging in hotels, motels, or other temporary housing options that Ordinance Number 2522 prohibiting price gouging remains in effect. The ordinance prohibits charging a price that exceeds by more than ten percent the price of rental units, goods or services as such existed before the declaration of an emergency event. This applies to hotels, motels, or other short-term or long-term rentals.
To report any suspected price gouging, please contact the Butte County District Attorney at 1-866-DA-FRAUD (1-866-323-7283). For more information on this ordinance, including a draft of the ordinance itself, please visit the City of Chico’s webpage at https://chico.ca.us/price-gouging-ordinance

Offering connections of donations of motorhomes, RVs, and trailers with families impacted by recent wildfires/natural disasters who are in need of shelter. Families will be contacted by volunteers if an RV is available in their area. Please note: completing the intake form is not a guarantee that families will be connected with an RV. Please submit only one application per household.
To be considered eligible: households must have lost their home due to a natural disaster (wildfire, hurricane, tornado, flood, earthquake, etc). Once matched with a donated RV, households must provide proof of residency of the home that was destroyed. Preferably a copy of their FEMA letter, but a utility bill or license/ID with their address is acceptable. A photocopy of a license and proof of a legal place to park the RV from a property owner will be required before EmergencyRV will deliver an RV.
Please Note: Households should wait to secure a place to park if and after they are contacted by EmergencyRV as there are no guarantees that they will be matched with an RV. Please fill out and submit the Survivor Intake Form found here, https://bit.ly/2ZXlvYi
Please note: We encourage those in need of Motorhome/RV Lodging to reach out directly to the park(s) individually before traveling there in person. Space availability changes often, typically daily. Please also note that those seeking parking/camping space at the parks below will be subject to park/campsite fees unless otherwise noted.
