The combined agencies operate under the business name of the Santa Clara County Housing Authority.

SCCHA provides rental subsidies and develops affordable housing for very-low income families, seniors and persons with disabilities living in Santa Clara County, California.

SCCHA administers approximately 19,000 Housing Choice Vouchers and 740 units of local, non-traditional housing between the two agencies. They also own or control approximately 2,500 affordable housing apartments throughout Santa Clara County.
