Alameda Rent Program

Under Rent Ordinance 3250, landlords must annually pay a program fee to the City of Alameda to cover the cost of administering the Alameda Rent Program. Landlords may pass through 50% of the Fiscal Year 2020-2021 program fee to tenants. Any pass through to a tenant must be charged in twelve equal installments.

On May 4, 2021, the Alameda City Council adopted the following tiered fee structure.

$148 - Fully Regulated Units: subject to all Ordinance 3250 provisions

$100   - Partially Regulated Units: subject to all Ordinance 3250 provisions except rent control

$0     - Rental units occupied by rent subsidized tenants (e.g. Housing Choice Voucher Section 8)

The total fees due for the upcoming fiscal year have been calculated based on the registration information and approved unit fee exemption requests submitted by the property owner. Invoices for fees due are mailed to all property owners and/or designated property managers.
