While all multifamily properties with five or more dwelling units in the nine county Bay Area (Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, Sonoma) are eligible to apply, first priority is given to properties that meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Contains less than 100 units
- Is a deed-restricted or naturally-occurring affordable property
- Has a resident ownership structure such as an HOA or co-op
- Is located within a disadvantaged community (determined by the AB 1550 Low-Income Communities map)
Properties that do not meet these criteria, or are not sure, are still encouraged to fill out an interest form, as certain exceptions can be made based on property location and scope of work. If funding is still available after July 1st, the program will begin accepting all eligible properties on a first-come first-served basis.
