City Of San Luis Obispo Housing Grant Programs

Affordable Housing Fund (AHF)

Established in 1999, the AHF implements the Inclusionary Housing Program and is funded by the payment of in-lieu affordable housing fees.

The City Council relies on the following criteria in reviewing requests for AHF funding:

Eligibility. Use of the Affordable Housing Fund will increase or improve affordable housing inventory and promote General Plan policies regarding housing and related community goals.

Need. There exists a substantial or overarching need for the type of housing to be assisted.

Suitability. The project to be assisted is appropriate for its location, both in terms of land use and design.

Timing. The project would better serve the City's needs if it were built immediately as opposed to later.

Financial Effectiveness. But for the requested assistance, the project would not be economically feasible; or AHF funding “leverages” significant additional funding from other sources.

Readiness. The project has all necessary City approvals and is ready to proceed.
