In the early 1900’s, Santa Paula was considered the pre-Hollywood film capital, the “Queen of the Silver Screen.” The community has a quaint, small town image, ideal climate, and reasonably priced housing. Santa Paula maintains its own identity and is in close proximity to the many tourist, recreational, and cultural activities that abound in Southern California. The Santa Paula Housing Authority was established in 1969 and serves a population of approximately 35,000. The Authority serves 577 families with Section 8 housing choice vouchers ($5.5M budget) and it has 117 units that are owned and operated by the Authority. Identifying new funding sources is of paramount importance to the Authority so it can continue to serve this community.
