UPDATED: SAPL Supports SAHA Housing Application Process – May 15 – June 1
The San Antonio Public Library is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA) to provide use of its computers and internet access at all of its 26 locations to anyone wishing to submit a Section 8 housing application to SAHA from May 15 – June 1. This is the first time in several years that the waiting list is opening. Applications are only being accepted online and with the possibilty that many applicants may not have immediate access to a computer or the internet, the Library’s public terminals are a logical option.
While the application window is only from May 15 – June 1, applications will be placed in a pool to be added to the waiting list and not on a first come first served basis. A computerized system will determine the order in which an application is processed for consideration. After June 1, applications can still be submitted, but they will be added sequentially after the first group.
SAHA representatives will be on-site at Central Library and the following branch libraries: Thousand Oaks, Memorial, Carver, Johnson and Mission. These representatives will be available to answer questions about the application process UNTIL May 19.
Please have your social security number and the name of your child’s school ready, if applicable. Also, please be sure your information is correct as you cannot go back and make corrections.

Please call the SAHA housing hotline for additional information: 1-877-550-1109.
