Developers leverage funds administered by the San Diego Housing Commission (SDHC) with several other funding sources to create and preserve affordable housing.
Developers may apply for funds through a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) issued by SDHC.
Future NOFAs will be accessible through SDHC’s Vendor Portal on PlanetBids.
Developers who wish to receive free notifications and download SDHC’s NOFAs should visit SDHC’s Vendor Portal with PlanetBids to register – Click Here.
To access SDHC’s solicitations, developers need to create a new profile and register specifically for SDHC, even if they already are registered with another public agency that uses PlanetBids or previously have accessed SDHC solicitations through the City of San Diego’s PlanetBids portal.
Funding sources for SDHC’s affordable housing development investments vary, but may include:
- U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) HOME Investment Partnerships Program funds awarded to the City of San Diego and administered by SDHC
- City of San Diego Affordable Housing Fund, which is administered by SDHC and consists of Housing Impact Fees charged on commercial developments (also known as Linkage Fees) and Inclusionary Housing Fees charged on residential developments
