Eligibility for MOHCD housing programs
Eligibility for MOHCD housing programs is determined by your:
Your household's total pre-tax (gross) income is compared to San Francisco's Area Median Income (AMI) each year. As an example, San Francisco's Area Median Income in 2019 for one person is $7183 per month. Many units offered in our programs are aimed at applicants who make less than that amount. There are also special calculations for income, depending on your situation.
Income eligibility requirements differ between properties. They are set by MOHCD and other funders.
Units of various sizes are available in our programs. We work to match household size with an appropriate unit size. For instance, a 1-person household will not be considered for a 2- or 3-bedroom unit.
Depending on the unit, there may be certain audience restrictions. For example, we have units especially for seniors or veterans.
For those looking to buy a home through MOHCD programs, we also have more eligibility requirements before you apply.
