The mission of NOHA is to ensure access to safe, affordable, decent housing for eligible residents of Columbia, Clatsop and Tillamook Counties and to break the poverty cycle by providing opportunity for self-sufficiency.



We have made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend NOHA office service in order to protect the health and safety of both application participants and employees. In light of the escalating concerns and restrictions aimed at reducing the impact of COVID-19, we have implemented the following changes:

  • The office service will be closed effective March 18th until further notice.
  • Use drop box outside office to turn in paperwork.
  • Please contact staff per email, some staff may be working remotely from home.

NOHA will temporarily suspend the following Section 8 Waitlist beginning 11:59pm Sunday June 30, 2024:

  • * Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV)
  • * Project-Based Voucher Program (PBV) 1-bedroom waitlist for Broadleaf Arbor
  • * Project-Based Voucher Program (PBV) waitlists for Trillium House at Chelsea Gardens
  • * Project-Based Voucher Program (PBV) waitlists for The Merwyn

Waitlist pre-applications received with a postmark or electronic time stamp of July 1, 2024 or later will not be accepted and will not be eligible for waiting list placement.

NOHA is temporarily halting new applications to prevent the waitlists from becoming excessively long and raising expectations of near-term housing rental assistance that cannot be met. This temporary suspension will also allow resources to be focused and directed towards serving those already on the waiting lists rather than adding additional households who would have to wait multiple years for housing assistance. When NOHA resumes accepting applications for any or all of the above waitlists, notice will be provided in accordance with NOHA policies.
