RFP for Consulting Services for the Inclusionary Housing Program 2023


The City of Alameda (City) has policies and programs to support affordable rental and homeownership through the creation, maintenance, and preservation of affordable rental and homeownership opportunities for income-eligible households.  The City seeks a service provider to administer various aspects of its Inclusionary Housing Ordinance (IHO).  The IHO is the mechanism for the development of affordable homeownership and rental housing in the City. When market-rate housing is proposed, the City requires the development of: 

  • Homes for sale to households who earn no more than 50% AMI for Very Low-, 80% AMI for Low-, or 120% AMI for Moderate Income
  • Homes for lease to households who earn no more than 50% AMI for Very Low-, 80% AMI for Low-, or 120% AMI for Moderate-Income

Developers enter into an Affordable Housing Agreement with the City. Developers who redevelop the former U.S. Naval Station have additional obligations, including adherence to the Renewed Hope Settlement as well as some workforce housing requirements for households who earn between 120% and 180% AMI.
