With 8,000 Latinos displaced in the last decade — over 25 percent of this community — there is an urgent need for affordable housing for MEDA’s clients (see page 6 of this report). That’s why MEDA’s Community Real Estate team is working diligently to produce and preserve housing in the Mission — affordable housing with values built in. Complementing this work is MEDA’s Housing Opportunities program, which prepares renters and first-time homebuyers.
For renters, below-market-rate (BMR) units have been hitting the market in greater numbers. Such is the case at 280 Brighton Avenue in the Ocean View neighborhood.
The apartments at 280 Brighton are offered via the BMR program from the San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development (MOHCD). Community members needing application assistance can come to MEDA on Monday, Nov. 21, at 5:45 p.m., with help offered in English and Spanish.
Deadline for application submission is Wednesday, Nov. 30, so time is of the essence.
Featured in a prime location – and in a brand-new building – these BMR rentals are ideal for MEDA clients in need of an affordable housing rental in San Francisco.
The breakdown for 280 Brighton is as follows:
- One BMR one-bedroom renting at $1,133, with a maximum family size of three and a minimum allowable monthly income level of $2,833.
- Two BMR two-bedrooms renting at $1,264, with a maximum family size of five and a minimum allowable monthly income level of $3,160.
There will be a public lottery on Wednesday, Dec. 21, at noon in the Koret Auditorium of the San Francisco Public Library a 100 Larkin Street.
