Affordable Housing Online is monitoring the federal government's response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. As of March 13, 2020, Public Housing Agencies across the nation are closing their doors to the public. Most offices are still running and will communicate by phone, email, or mail. Some offices have drop boxes installed outside, so documents can still be hand-delivered. Visit the housing authority's website for the latest on its current operations, if one is available. If there is no information online, contact the housing authority directly. Due to a high volume of calls and modified office hours in most areas, expect a long wait time (days or weeks) for a response. To find your local PHA's contact info, browse by state here.

An extensive list of coronavirus resources for low-income households can be found here.

Marea Alta

1400 San Leandro Boulevard, San Leandro, California 94577

Located on a former BART parking lot adjacent to the San Leandro BART Station, Marea Alta includes 115 rental apartments affordable to households earning 30-55% of Area Median Income. Building amenities include a community room with full kitchen, laundry facilities, bike storage, and a landscaped courtyard with gathering space and a children’s play structure.

Marea Alta also includes a child care center that will be operated by Davis Street Family Resource Center, as well as the creation of more than 240 below-grade parking spaces for BART patrons. Removal of the former parking lot, combined with the addition of ground floor community-serving space, enriches San Leandro Boulevard and promotes pedestrian activity.

Marea Alta was constructed with an innovative design-build process to increase project efficiencies. While Marea Alta was BRIDGE’s first modular project, the technique will be used again for the second phase of the master-planned site: San Leandro Senior Apartments, 85 affordable apartment homes for seniors.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
