BERKELEY HOUSING AUTHORITY
HOUSING PROGRAMS AND ELIGIBILITY
The Berkeley Housing Authority administers two basic types of housing programs:
Tenant-based assistance is tied to the family who receives the freedom of searching for affordable housing among all rental housing within the Berkeley Housing Authority's jurisdiction.
Project-based assistance is tied to a specific dwelling. The family who lives there will pay an affordable rent, but if they move, they receive no further rental assistance. The unit then goes to the next income-eligible family who moves in.
The rent paid by families is based on household income (see the Housing Statistics link below). Rent is generally between 30% to 40% of the family’s monthly-adjusted gross income.
