Welcome to the San Mateo County Department of Housing. The Department consists of two divisions: Housing & Community Development (HCD) and the Housing Authority of the County of San Mateo (HACSM).

The Department of Housing is a catalyst for increasing access to affordable housing, increasing the supply of workforce housing, and supporting related community development, so that housing permanently exists for people of all income levels and generations in San Mateo County.
