The Housing Division is dedicated to preserving
existing affordable housing in Santa Monica and creating new housing
opportunities for residents with low and moderate incomes. Pressures on the
existing housing stock in Santa Monica from market forces and changes to
state and federal laws will impact affordable housing opportunities for low
and moderate income persons and families. The Housing Division works with
private affordable housing developers and multifamily property owners to
ensure that economic diversity, a hallmark of Santa Monica, continues to
flourish and that longtime residents can remain in their households.

investment of federal, state and local affordable housing funds.
