Affordable Housing Database AB987 - 2020

AB 987 – Affordability Covenants and Restrictions List

In accordance with the requirements of AB 987 passed by the California State Legislature, a worksheet describing existing, new, and substantially rehabilitated housing developed or otherwise assisted with monies from the former Redevelopment Agency’s Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund, including units counted to meet inclusionary and replacement housing obligations, is posted below for public review. 

Please be aware that this is only a record of affordable housing that has been assisted with Low and Moderate Income Housing Funds; it is not a listing of currently available housing. 

The U.S. Department of the Treasury announced the launch of an exciting national Public Service Advertising campaign to promote the Making Home Affordable (MHA) Program to help homeowners avoid foreclosure.
