Emergency Housing Vouchers Available:
The Oceanside Housing Authority has begun administering new Emergency Housing Vouchers (EHVs) for qualified individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.  If you believe you may be eligible for an EHV, you must contact the San Diego County Continuum of Care (SD CoC) by dialing “2-1-1” on a phone and mentioning the “Emergency Housing Voucher Program."  The Oceanside Housing Authority office cannot, and will not, accept any EHV applications directly.


The County’s 2021 Emergency Rent and Utilities Assistance Program (ERAP) helps eligible households in Oceanside who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program provides payment assistance for renters who need help with rent and utilities. Applications will be accepted until funds are no longer available.   For more information and to apply for assistance please visit ERAPSanDiego.org
