To apply, applicants must bring head of household's Social Security card (non-legal status applicants must bring a birth certificate or matricula) and a legal or business document displaying their name with their current home address.

The opening date is Feb. 12, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Location for opening day is Madera Fairgrounds Womans World Building, 1850 W. Cleveland, Madera.

Families wishing to apply after the opening day may apply at the main Housing Authority office, 205 N. G St., Madera, between Feb. 17 and March 12 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The Section 8 voucher program waiting list will close on March 12 at 6p.m.

Families that are current participants in the public housing program will have to fill out a new Section 8 voucher application during the open waiting list period to be considered for this program.
