Affordable Housing Guidelines

All developers should start here for affordable housing development and/or preservation projects.

All owners and developers requesting City discretionary approvals regarding multifamily projects with existing City financing and/or restrictions are required to submit the Multifamily Housing Application.

The City encourages developers to submit the fully completed Application as early as possible, so that the transaction may be prioritized.  For example, if you are applying to TCAC or CDLAC with assumptions about City Loan terms or Bond Issuance, we strongly recommend submitting this application to the City at a minimum [6 months] before your proposed transaction.

In addition, the Housing Department has developed the City of San Jose Proforma for the analysis and underwriting of affordable housing development.
