San Diego Housing Commission

General Information

The San Diego Housing Commission's (SDHC) original MTW program, which lasted from 1998 until 2003, was designed for 22 public housing families and 50 Section 8 families who were working, looking for work, or enrolled in a job-training program. In 2009, SDHC rejoined the MTW demonstration, seeking to utilize the benefits of MTW to move toward becoming the leading San Diego community organization providing new housing solutions for local low-income families.

SDHC seeks to accomplish this by maximizing resources through operational efficiencies and technological innovations, increasing the number of housing opportunities that serve low-income and homeless individuals and families in the city of San Diego and advocating for more effective affordable housing policies and resources

SDHC currently administers approximately 200 public housing units, 16,050 Housing Choice Voucher units, and 1,700 local, non-traditional units.
