Default Section 8 in Santa Monica

Section 8 is an entitlement program for people that can not help themselves. The program is paid for the taxpayers. The taxpayers are taxed by the government. The government controls the Section 8 program with funds and materials from the taxpayers. Entitlements are entitlements just like water is water. It is what it is!

I've lived in Santa Monica for 28 years. It is indeed one of the most desirable area of L.A. to live in. Which is why it's so expensive.

Yes, it's hard to buy champagne on a beer budget.

I have a section 8 voucher and I'm looking for affordable AND safe section 8 in Santa Monica, CA. I am relocating from Columbus, Ohio.

My problem is that the Santa Monica housing authority has advised me they only have a "handful" of properties available and they will not send me a list of available housing units.

How in the world I will be able to find housing without being in California is beyond me so I plan to make a trip in mid March but I'm very worried I won't be able to find housing in the time that I'm out there let alone coordinate the transferrance of my voucher in time so that my daughter and i will not be without housing. I am set to move at the end of April/beginning of May timeframe.

If anyone knows of real estate agents/owners or property who rent to section 8 voucher holders and are looking for a responsible, and quiet tenant please respond to this as I want a great environment for myself and my daughter. Also any additional info would be helpful.

Any information/tips/contacts would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much,
Tiffany
Look at culver city! Somewhat good area and reasonable rents! Have family there that has told me that. As long as your voucher covers some of the cost not exceeding 40% of You modified adjusted gross income. $2,500 would be a good range to look in and possibly 3,000 and negotiate. If their rent can be covered and they discriminate against you, report them to the appropriate authority.

Yet here I am paying for the retirement of many baby boomers and you don't hear me complaining! Suck it up and live your life.

Waterfront RE has always been much pricier than the rest of any metro area you can think of, and no remotely intelligent landlord is going to put up with the gruesome hassle factor and restrictions associated with section 8.

As someone stated earlier, go inland.
