How can I apply for housing assistance? 

The Department of Housing home page at www.smchousing.org contains the most up-to-date information.  Visit often to find out waiting list information or other housing opportunities.

Do you offer emergency housing assistance? I need housing help right now, how can I get some help? 

While the Housing Authority offers many housing services and programs, we are not funded to provide emergency housing services. We recommend you visit www.SMCHousingSearch.org (or the toll-free call center at 1-877-428-8844) to help find a place to live; or contact your local San Mateo County Core Services Center; or to call 2-1-1 for information on shelter/housing

How can I get a list of affordable housing? 

You can search up-to-date affordable housing listing at www.SMCHousingSearch.org. Each affordable housing development may have its own waiting list and the waiting list may be closed. Contact each affordable housing development to find out its availability.
