The Area Housing Authority of the County of Ventura is a federally funded, non-profit, public agency serving the cities of Camarillo, Fillmore, Moorpark, Ojai, Thousand Oaks, and Simi Valley and the unincorporated areas of the County. We administer a rental subsidy program called the Housing Choice Voucher Program, commonly referred to as Section 8.

What is the difference between Section 8 and Public Housing?
The key differences are:

  • Section 8 participants select their own dwelling in the community of their choice within the jurisdiction from a private landlord.

  • Public Housing participants live in a specifically designated, federally-funded complex owned and operated by the Area Housing Authority.

  • Each program requires a separate application.
