Alameda County housing program seeks landlords

Rental payments are guaranteed by nonprofit organization

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.
