housing program for low-income persons with mental disabilities. All units are studio apartments. All
units are eligible for rent subsidies through the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara Project
Based Section 8 Program.
All tenants must be low income and mentally disabled.
All utilities including basic cable are provided and included in the rent amount.
Project Based Section 8
Tenants in the Hollister building are able to obtain rental subsidies through the Housing Authority of
the City of Santa Barbara under the Project Based Section 8 program, (PBA8). Under the PBA8
program, tenants are eligible for Section 8 rent subsidies. However, tenants do not hold a Housing
Assistance Voucher personally. Rather, the vouchers are held by the Hollister building as a “Project”
and designated as Project Based Section 8 vouchers.
The Housing Authority will evaluate the applicant’s income and determine a rent subsidy amount.
Essentially, tenant portion of rent will equate to roughly 30% of their income with the balance of rent
being paid from the subsidy.
