Rental Subsidies for Low Income Seniors and People with Disabilities are vital to Keeping Seniors Housed and Safe
SITUATION: A majority of senior renters and people with disabilities in S.F. have incomes too low to qualify for “affordable” housing and need rental subsidies to afford even these programs. There are 2 types of rental subsidies:
1) Portable Rental Subsidies provide assistance with rent payments that stay with the tenant if they need to move.
2) Senior Operating Subsidies (SOS): Subsidies stay with the rental unit as “deeply affordable” set asides for very low-income seniors. Funds for SOS program presently available for 5 years only starting in 2019.
Both of these programs have been successful and must be expanded!
1) Phone and/or email Mayor London Breed and ask her to fund $3 million for portable rental subsidies and $3M for Senior Operating Subsidies in the Fiscal Year 2021-22 budget.
CONTACT: PLEASE CALL ASAP BECAUSE THE MAYOR ANNOUNCES HER BUDGET ON JUNE 1!!!
