Becoming a Resident
Below are answers to questions we often get asked when someone is interested in becoming a resident of Villa de Vida Poway.
How do I qualify to live at Villa de Vida?
The Housing Authority of the County of San Diego (HACSD) will open a new waiting list for those interested in applying to live at Villa de Vida Poway. All applicants will be selected from the HACSD Villa de Vida Waiting List. The HACSD Villa de Vida Waiting List is not currently open. HACSD will notify the public when the HACSD Villa de Vida Waiting List will open and interested individuals will be given a chance to apply in person, online or by calling HACSD.
HACSD will provide project-based vouchers (PBVs) to eligible applicants. PBVs help low-income families and individuals with the cost of their rent at a specific location. The HACSD will determine an applicant’s eligibility for the PBV program in accordance to the policies found in the HACSD Administrative Plan. Waiting list priority is based on date and time of application, as well as living or working in the HACSD’s jurisdiction. Additionally, to qualify to live at Villa de Vida the head of household must meet the specific definition of disability, as this property is designated for a special population. The head of household must also be an individual adult with Developmental Disabilities or be an adult with disabilities that may benefit from the services offered through this development.
