Resources for Current Renters
We have resources to help current MOHCD renters stay in their homes, to help you avoid eviction or handle landlord/tenant conflict. There are also resources for renters in buildings going through foreclosure.
Your property manager will contact you every year to make sure you're following the rules for the Inclusionary Housing Program. They will also be able to tell you about your apartment's income limits.
Dept of Homelessness and Supportive Housing
HSH provides funds for:
- Paying back rent to prevent eviction
- One-time rental assistance
- Security deposit funds to move into permanent housing
Call the San Francisco Rental Assistance Program Information Line at (415) 557-6484 for more information.
MOHCD's Small Sites Program (SSP)
SSP can help you stay in your home, by converting your building to permanently affordable housing. A nonprofit can buy your building before an investor does.
If you're having conflict with your landlord or another tenant, the Bar Association of San Francisco provides mediators for free, to help you resolve disputes.
Conflict Intervention Service
- Call the helpline for a free phone consultation to resolve disputes.
- If needed, a free mediation session with a social worker may be organized. This session is voluntary and confidential for all parties involved.
