Recommendations for funding followed a competitive process evaluated by a selection panel with expertise in affordable housing finance and construction from MOHCD, the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH), Department of Environment, and the San Francisco Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure (OCII).

Selected projects are expected to complete the scope of work supported by these funds by 2026.

MOHCD received 15 applications for 20 buildings with 919 units, with a total funding request of $40.4 million for repairs. The $20 million represented by this NOFA addresses approximately 49% of funding required to address deferred affordable housing maintenance identified by applicants.
