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, and now under new leadership seeks 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 creating a broad continuum of housing programs, including creative and pioneering uses of Project-Based Vouchers and Self-Sufficiency programs.

SDHC currently administers 35 public housing units and 13,900 Housing Choice Voucher units.
