Please Note

The City of Santa Fe does not directly provide housing services or manage housing facilities. 

If you are seeking information about public housing, there are two housing authorities in Santa Fe: the Santa Fe Civic Housing Authority and the County of Santa Fe Housing Authority. The City of Santa Fe does not oversee these housing authorities. Both agencies manage housing facilities and administer Housing Choice Vouchers (formerly Section 8). You must:

  • Have established residency in Santa Fe to qualify for their services
  • and contact them directly to find out how to get on the waiting list. Their contact information is provided below.
