The City of San Rafael is committed to creating and maintaining housing that is safe, stable, and affordable for our community, especially for those who are most vulnerable including lower and moderate-income people and families, and for seniors, people living with special needs or a disability, and individuals and families who have previously experienced homelessness.
To support the efforts of affordable housing developers, the City maintains an Affordable Housing Trust Fund and periodically issues notices of funding available.
Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) and HOME
Our staff works with the County Federal Grants division to allocate housing funds in the San Rafael Planning Area pursuant to a cooperative agreement. CDBG and HOME funds are allocated on a specific funding cycle, with applications due in December for funding in the following July. Additional information on these programs is available at County of Marin or (415) 499-6695.
