Inclusionary Affordable Housing Fee Requirements

Effective November 1, 2016, the San Francisco Planning Department will be responsible for calculating the Affordable Housing Fee for all Project Sponsors.  The Planning Department will enter the fee into a permit tracking system shared with the Department of Building Inspection.  The Affordable Housing Fee will be based on the current published Affordable Housing Fee Schedule available below and also available on the Planning Department's website.  Sponsors should work directly with their assigned Planner to determine their fee due and contact Carly Grob at (415) 575-9138 for general questions regarding the fee. 

Important: Sponsors must make final payment of all development fees through the Department of Building Inspection (DBI). DBI must issue a report on all fees owed before sponsors can pay the Affordable Housing Fee or any other fee. Prior to issuance of the first building permit or, in the case where a site permit is issued, the first addendum authorizing construction of the project, a fee report will be issued. Payments for fees must be made at the Permit Center, DBI, 1660 Mission, 6th floor, San Francisco, CA 94103, (415) 558-6131.
