Yolo County Housing is dedicated to working together to provide quality affordable housing and community development services to all within its service area. Yolo County Housing was first created in 1950. Its primary programs are funded by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and through the State of California (OMS and HCD). The Housing Authority and its allied organizations provide assistance to approximately 2,076 households. Housing assistance is provided throughout the region and can be found in Woodland, West Sacramento, Davis, Winters, Esparto, Yolo, Knight's Landing, Dunnigan, Madison and in Dixon (Solano County).
YCH provides year-round rental assistance through low cost housing that it owns and manages, as well as through housing that it owns in partnership. It also provides assistance through its Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program, its Project-Based Voucher program and through its Section 8 Homeownership program. Additional units are available as well as through housing programs provided by its non-profit subsidiary, New Hope Community Development Corporation.
YCH also provides decent and safe temporary housing to migrant farmworker families during the County’s growing season. The City operates two centers in Yolo County. In addition, the YCH also provides staff and services to the Dixon Housing Authority and manages its Dixon Migrant Center.
YCH provides space that is used by a number of local City, County, University and non-profit organizations to provide after-school and educational programs for youth, as well as senior meal programs and classes to City and County residents regardless of whether or not they receive other services through the YCH.
