BUTTE AND GLENN COUNTIES, Calif. - Thousands of people on Section 8 in Butte and Glenn counties would be affected if the government shutdown continues past February.
According to Executive Director Ed Mayer, the Butte County Housing Authority will have enough federal funding through February.
A total of 650 landlords receive about $950,000 to $1 million each month in subsidies.
Mayer said it's unlikely, however, that the shutdown would get to a point that would impact his office's services.
"I think it's unlikely because the consequences are so severe," he said. "Because you're talking about the upheaval in the entire property management industry across the United States and I think the blowback from property owners and real estate interests are too severe."
A total of 320 voucher families were displaced after the Camp Fire.
Mayer said vouchers were re-issued to 280 households, 23 of these households repopulated in Magalia.
