Phase 2: Targeted Technical Assistance

The second phase of the Alameda County Housing Development Capacity Building Program will build on the workshops offered this summer and provide targeted technical assistance and financial resources to up to 10 faith- and community-based organizations located in Alameda County that own property they wish to develop into affordable housing. The program will assist organizations accepted into the program to partner with an experienced housing developer and initiate a development plan to build affordable housing.

For selected organizations, the targeted technical assistance will include the following services:

  • One on one advising with a development consultant
  • Training from experts in the field
  • Access to a cohort of faith- and community-based organizations working on similar projects
  • Limited financial support to fund predevelopment activities, such as property zoning analysis, financial feasibility analysis, and legal assistance. These financial resources are generously provided by The San Francisco Foundation.
Applications for the Targeted Technical Assistance program are now closed. Decision notifications will be sent out in mid-November.
