Mercy North Auburn at Rock Creek Project-Based Waitlist

Mercy North Auburn at Rock Creek in the Placer County Government Center is a 79-unit affordable apartment and townhome development located at 2960 1st Street in Auburn. 20 of the 79 units, consisting of 16 one-bedroom and 4 two-bedroom units, will be project-based and include rental assistance through the Housing Choice Voucher program. To be eligible for the project-based units, households must meet the income requirements and be experiencing homelessness, chronic homelessness or at risk of chronic homelessness and include at least one person who is in need of mental health services. Placer County Housing Authority (PCHA) will be accepting preliminary applications by direct referral for the 20 project-based units starting October 11, 2021, at 8:00 AM, and referrals will come directly from the Placer County Coordinated Entry System managed by the Homeless Resource Council of the Sierras. Interested applicants that meet the above criteria, including households active on the HCV waiting list, should contact Placer County 211 by dialing 2-1-1 or 1-833-DIAL211.
