Affordable Housing

We understand that affordable housing in the Bay Area can be hard to come by, which is why we try to keep a list of affordable housing opportunities. 

Affordable Housing Search Websites


The City of Union City is pleased to share a new resource for finding affordable housing opportunities across Alameda County: Alameda County Housing Portal. The County's in-progress website will ultimately serve as both a one-stop-shop for affordable rental housing and include common short form application to make your experience of applying for housing easier. Please continue to check the website for available housing opportunities.

Affordable Housing Interest List

We keep an interest list for people who are interested in affordable housing opportunities. As new affordable housing becomes available, we will send you information for each individual project (description of housing development and income requirements). Please note, the interest list is not an application wait list, it is an "interest list" only. To get on our affordable housing interest list, please sign up for email updates below:
