Background

As adopted by the Board of Supervisors, the Inclusionary Affordable Housing Ordinance (Section 415.5 of the San Francisco Planning Code) prescribes that an Affordable Housing Fee (the “Fee”) must be paid for residential developments subject to Section 415 et seq. The Fee is based on the number of units applicable under the “off-site” option as established in Section 415 the Planning Code. The current applicable percentage varies depending on the number of units proposed, unless the development submitted its first planning application under an earlier version of the program. Certain Area Plans such as the Eastern Neighborhoods Plan also require a different off-site percentage.  Please see the San Francisco Planning Department's Inclusionary Housing Program Overview page for specific requirements.

The fee is currently indexed to the Construction Cost Index (CCI) for San Francisco as published by Engineering News-Record.

The San Francisco Planning Department shall calculate the fee using the direct fractional result of the total number of units.
