A variety of opportunities exist for businesses, landlords, developers and lenders to work with the San Diego Housing Commission (SDHC) for operations, affordable housing development, rental homes, goods and/or services that are essential to carrying out SDHC’s award-winning programs.
SDHC uses a competitive bid process to procure a variety of goods, services, supplies and equipment, as well as competitive Notices of Funding Availability to award development funds.
Contacting SDHC officials about pending contracts or requests for proposals may trigger reporting requirements under the City of San Diego’s Lobbying Ordinance.
As an equal opportunity contractor and employer, SDHC follows all applicable City, State and Federal laws. This includes Section 3 of the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Act of 1968. SDHC complies with Section 3 within its own operations and ensures the compliance of its sub-recipients, developers, contractors, and subcontractors.
SDHC does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious creed, ancestry, disability, medical condition, place of birth, age, sexual orientation, gender, marital status or national origin.
