Our Mission

 1349 26th Street

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.
