Concord Housing to Pause Voucher Waitlist

Concord Housing to Pause Voucher Waitlist
March 4, 2024

There are so few available apartments that Concord Housing and Redevelopment paused its housing voucher waitlist again on March 1.

Thousands of applicants sit on the current list, and with an average turnover of 34 apartments per year, moving off the list and then finding an apartment that accepts the voucher has been a near-impossible feat.

Vacancy rates sit below 1% statewide, and while a number of projects could bring available units online in Concord, they won’t be ready for tenants for at least a year.
