The Berkeley Housing Authority was awarded 51 Emergency Housing Vouchers (EHVs), to assist individuals and families who are homeless; at risk of homelessness; fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking; or recently homeless. EHVs will help individuals and families find housing and remain stably housed long-term.  BHA will be working with the Alameda County Coordinated Entry System (CES) which will refer eligible individuals and families to us for distribution of these new vouchers.  If you are experiencing homelessness or domestic violence/human trafficking, please click here for information on how to get connected with the CES.
