About Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara

Since 1969, the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara has developed and/or secured over 3,000 units of affordable rental housing for Santa Barbara.

We dedicate ourselves to being more than just housing. We work to match the programs we operate and the housing we build, with the identified needs of the community.

Through initiatives, programs, and strong partnerships in the community, we help working individuals and families live where they work, enabling them to enjoy a thriving Santa Barbara economy and community.

Our work respects the human spirit, builds on basic American values, helps our neighbors, seeks to end homelessness and improves our community's public and social health.

Along with our primary mission to serve “lower income” families, we also create programs designed to include income earners who are not strictly at the very lowest end of the income bracket. Our below market, fixed-rent properties are located in neighborhoods throughout the city and are often the most attractive housing on the block.

For our clients, the opportunity to have a safe, secure and affordable home is the needed foundation for pursuing life's other activities that bring success and happiness: things like education, career advancement, sending a child to college, or simply being healthy and warm with a safe place to call home. Without the foundation and security of a home, such goals are elusive and the path to self-sufficiency is difficult, if not impossible to find.
