In 1967, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors established the Santa Clara County Housing Authority (SCCHA) as an independent local government agency to administer the federal rental assistance programs authorized by the United States Housing Act of 1937. Since 1976, SCCHA has operated the federal rental assistance programs of the County of Santa Clara and the City of San José as one program. In 2008, Congress designated SCCHA a Moving to Work (MTW) demonstration agency.

Our agency assists about 17,000 households through the federal rental housing assistance (Housing Choice Voucher, also known as Section 8) program. We also develop, control and manage affordable rental housing properties. The majority of our program funding comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Our programs and properties are targeted to assist low, very low and extremely low-income households. The vast majority—more than 80%—of our client households are extremely low-income families, seniors, veterans, persons with disabilities and the formerly homeless. Working together with landlords, housing developers, charities and local governments, we strive to provide housing and support services to as many eligible families as possible.
