Affordable Housing Initiative

As housing in the Bay Area continues to be an acute challenge, HIF recognizes the need to support working families that educate our children and provide services to the community. Many families earn too much to qualify for assistance but not enough to be stably housed.

Through our extensive network of landlords and property management companies, HIF matches qualified applicants living in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties (particularly those in the education, non-profit and other community-based sectors) who fall in the 50-80% of Average Median Income (AMI) to affordable housing at up to 50% below market rates for up to three years. Households that are close to this range, will be considered depending on circumstances and their overall financial picture (click here for program guidelines).

While there are an estimated 150,000 homeless people statewide, there are 300,000 people in the Bay Area alone with $400 or less to cope with a financial emergency and are on the verge of homelessness.
