Setting some "ambitious targets" to ensure affordable housing and eliminate homelessness in Alameda County, the county is looking for landlords to match with local residents in need of a home as part of its Vision 2026.
The program is part of Alameda County's efforts to maximize the countywide Measure A1 housing bond to invest approximately $340 million over the next three years.
Property owners and housing providers that are "friendly to people on a fixed income or to people with third-party housing assistance funds" are being sought. Tenants accepted for the program pay a percentage of their income towards rent, with the remaining balance supported by public and private funding. Payment is guaranteed by a nonprofit organization.
Studios and one- and two-bedroom units of any size -- and with their own bathroom and kitchen or kitchenette -- and that have easy access to public transportation are wanted.
Landlords will be guaranteed on-time monthly payments, and receive support with any tenant issues. Residents support services are also available for tenants. The program includes financial incentives.
