Since the Housing Department was established in 1987, the city has created more than 21,000 new housing opportunities for San José residents.

A major function of the Housing Department is its work as a funder, using numerous financing vehicles to bring new affordable housing to fruition and rehabilitate older housing.

The Department also funds grants to nonprofits for social services, homeless response programs, and community infrastructure. Additional grants support Fair Housing policies and meal programs for low-income seniors.

The department oversees a range of other initiatives, including rent control and stabilization programs for apartments and mobile homes, and the Ellis Act Ordinance, which protects the city's supply of affordable rental housing.
