Housing Division

A home is more than four walls, floors, and a roof. Home is a place to grow, raise a family and find peace of mind. Everyone, no matter their financial situation, deserves a clean, safe, and beautiful place to live.   

Affordable Housing

The Housing Division provides low-income to moderate-income residents with additional help when:

- buying a first home,

- making repairs to an existing home, or

implementing green-building practices.

The Housing Division works closely with other agencies on affordable housing, to develop opportunities for eligible families through financial assistance loans.

Prohousing Designation & Pilot Program Funding

The City of Stockton has been awarded the “Prohousing Designation” from the California Department of Housing and Community Development (“HCD”). Out of 539 eligible cities and counties, the City of Stockton was one of only 22 municipalities and has been recognized for its strategies and policies that increase the affordable housing supply, based on the City's:

  • 100% density bonus that exceeds State standards,
  • allowance of duplexes “by-right” in single-family residential zones,
  • streamlined project reviews, and
  • the Citywide Affordable Housing Development Fee Exemption Program, which reduces the financial burden of developing affordable housing.

In addition, the City has received $2.37 million in funding for a Prohousing Incentive Pilot Program, which it will use to launch:

  • an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) Navigator,
  • a Developer Training Academy, and
  • the acquisition and rehabilitation of scattered site housing for unhoused residents or people at-risk of homelessness.
