Support the Affordable Housing Bonus Program!

Affordable Housing Bonus ProgramJoin the SFHAC and SPUR in making the Affordable Housing Bonus Program (AHBP) a reality.

The AHBP creates a new tool for housing developers to build up to 30-percent on-site affordable housing for low and middle-income residents throughout San Francisco, at no cost to the public. This program applies to transit and mixed-used commercial districts (not single family residential streets). To accommodate the new affordable homes, this will allow two stories to be added to new developments. The AHBP protects rent-controlled buildings.  


This program isn’t favorable among some neighbors who claim this new tool will drastically harm neighborhood character, or that we should only be incentivizing very-low and low-income housing, and not housing for our middle-income earners. The SF Housing Action Coalition and SPUR believe the AHBP is a common-sense way to build new low AND middle-income housing on our transit corridors. 

Here are 3 things you can do to be sure our city’s leaders hear from folks like you who believe this program is a smart solution to San Francisco’s housing needs. 

  1. Sign the email petition to support the Affordable Housing Bonus Program.
  2. RSVP to attend the Planning Commission hearing February 25. 
  3. Share this petition with your friends, colleagues and neighbors. #SupportAHBP
