Government Shutdown Message: It's business as usual at the Housing Authority of the County of San Mateo
As you may know, a partial government shutdown started on Saturday, December 22, 2018. As a result, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is closed. Since the majority of the Housing Authority funds come from HUD, it impacts our programs. For example, the housing assistance payments for landlords under the Section 8 Voucher program are scheduled for the months of January and February 2019, and for now, the Housing Authority will operate as usual. As we get a better sense of how long this shutdown will last, we will be able to assess future situations and communicate the information. We will keep you informed as we learn additional information about the situation.
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.
