San Mateo County Department of Housing, with input from its partners, has updated its loan terms and underwriting guidelines, as well as policies and procedures for County-funded affordable housing projects. The terms and policies were updated in June 2020.   

Updates to DOH’s loan terms and policies serve to further the Department’s role as a catalyst for increasing access to affordable housing and supporting related community development so that housing permanently exists for people of all income levels and generations in San Mateo County.  

A big thanks to all of our partners who provided input on our updated loan terms and policies.

Please note that DOH may update its loan terms and policies or add additional policies over time.
