In 2001, the County of San Mateo created a Landlord and Tenant Information and Referral Collaborative. It was a partnership of nonprofit and public entities which operated cooperatively to provide a range of services addressing landlord and tenant concerns and issues in San Mateo County. 

In October of 2014, the County Board of Supervisors requested that a group of County staff from various departments, including the Department of Housing, research ways the County could address the affordable housing crisis.  A White Paper titled "Affordable Housing: Preventing Displacement and Promoting Affordable Housing in San Mateo County" was prepared in response to that request.  One of the measures that came out of that White Paper was titled "Landlord and Tenant's Rights Education".  The follow-up action on that measure was to put out an RFP to select a vendor to provide Landlord and Tenant Information and Referral Services to mirror what the Collaborative tried to put into place back in 2001.  

Project Sentinel has been selected as the vendor to provide this service to landlords and/or tenants in the County of San Mateo.  Below you can find flyers on a couple of workshops that Project Sentinel is hosting, one on November 10, 2016 from 5-7pm in South San Francisco and the other on November 17, 2016 from 4-5pm in Pacifica.
