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.
Funding sources for SDHC’s affordable housing development investments vary and may include, but are not limited to:
- 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 SDHC administers and consists of Housing Impact Fees charged on commercial developments (also known as Linkage Fees) and Inclusionary Housing Fees charged on residential developments
If you have questions about a development NOFA, please contact Maurcell Gresham by email at [email protected].
How to Access an SDHC Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA)
NOFAs are accessible through SDHC’s Vendor Portal on PlanetBids. Developers who wish to receive free notifications regarding NOFAs and download SDHC’s current NOFAs should register on the SDHC Vendor Portal with PlanetBids.
To access SDHC’s NOFAs, along with other 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.

Affordable Housing NOFA
SDHC released a NOFA on August 30, 2021, to make up to $16 million available to facilitate acquisition and new construction, acquisition with rehabilitation, or rehabilitation of affordable multifamily rental housing developments in the City of San Diego. This NOFA also includes 150 federal Project-Based Housing Vouchers (PBV) for households with low income in the City of San Diego. These vouchers are not for permanent supportive housing and need to be issued to assist applicants on SDHC’s PBV waiting list.
