Whether you are a renter or a homeowner, our goal is to inform you about housing assistance programs and projects.

We can help you on the following:

  • First-time home-buyer programs
  • Foreclosure information and resources
  • Home repair grant opportunities
  • Housing developer resources
  • Housing element
  • Tenant and landlord information
