San Francisco Small Sites Program creates long-lasting impact

In 2014 NCCLF became a lender for the San Francisco Small Sites Program (SSP), an initiative of the City of San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development (MOHCD) which preserves housing for low-income San Francisco residents. The loan program provides acquisition and rehabilitation financing to developers that supports the purchase and renovation of multi-family apartment buildings of four-25 units housing residents with an average Area Median Income (AMI) of 80%. This program was designed to protect residents who were susceptible to losing their homes due to evictions (mostly arising from the Ellis Act) or rising rents.
