Program Overview

The Emergency Housing Voucher (EHV) program is a new affordable housing program serving low-income families across the country.  EHV helps families locate rental housing and provides financial assistance to make their rent affordable.  HACSB began accepting referrals for the EHV Program from the San Bernardino County Coordinated Entry System and Victim Services Providers on October 4, 2021, and is authorized to serve up to 455 families.

Families must be low-income and meet at least one of the following categories:

  1. Homeless
  2. At risk of being homeless
  3. Fleeing or attempting to flee:
    1. Domestic violence;
    2. Dating violence;
    3. Sexual assault;
    4. Stalking; and/or
    5. Human trafficking
  4. Recently homeless, and rental assistance will prevent a return to homelessness or high risk of housing instability.

HACSB cannot accept applications for the EHV program directly from individuals and/or families. Instead, individuals and families are referred to HACSB through the San Bernardino County Coordinated Entry System (CES) or a victim service provider (VSP) with whom HACSB has a referral partnership.

Due to the number of referrals received, all referrals to the EHV program received after 5:00 PM on September 26, 2022, are being placed on a wait list.
