    Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara Held Below Market Workforce Housing on State Street Friday, Nov. 17th

    State Street Commercial Space Transitions to Workforce Housing in Public-Private Partnership

    The Housing Authority’s innovative Workforce Housing Program is designed to address the affordable housing needs of our community’s low to moderate income workforce who are increasingly caught in the gap between skyrocketing rents and ineligibility for other assistance. 

    The Housing Authority is committed to providing affordable housing to make it possible for more people to live where they work, in Santa Barbara. This approach benefits people who can keep transportation and other costs to a minimum, and have more time to spend with family, education, or career development. And benefits us all by minimizing the impact of commuting on our environment and quality of life in Santa Barbara. 

    Applications have already been accepted and closed for this property and new residents will be moving into their studios on December 20. 

    Who: Rob Fredericks, CEO of the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara,Pat Wheatley, Housing Authority Commission Chair, Congressman Salud Carbajal, Assemblyman Gregg Hart, Supervisor Das Williams, Santa Barbara Mayor Randy Rowse, representatives for State Senator Monique Limon and Ben Romo.
