Small Sites Program
Information for tenants looking to avoid displacement or eviction
The Small Sites Program (SSP) helps San Franciscans avoid displacement or eviction.
The program provides loans to nonprofit organizations, to buy buildings before an investor does. The buildings are then converted to permanently affordable housing.
Existing tenants can stay in their home and enjoy the peace of mind that they won’t be pushed out of the City.
How it works
Is my building eligible?
The tenants in your building must have incomes that are eligible for SSP. Your building must also have between 5-25 apartments.
The typical income level for the program ranges between 50% and 120% of the Area Median Income (AMI). You can still nominate your building for the program if your income is lower than 50% AMI or higher than 120% AMI. The nonprofit organization can help you find out if your building is eligible for SSP.
|Household Size||50% AMI||60% AMI||80% AMI||100% AMI||120% AMI|
There are other eligibility criteria, including:
- Income of other tenants living in the building
- How much the building was bought for
- Cost of conversion and renovation
