Inclusionary Housing Policy in Redevelopment Project Areas (RDA)
Inclusionary Housing Policy

On August 4, 2015, a letter signed by the Interim Director of Housing provides information on implementation of the City's Inclusionary Housing Ordinance

San José’s Inclusionary Policy applies to all new for-sale residential developments with 11 or more units built within redevelopment project areas. For those developments with recorded covenants effectuating the Policy, the Policy continues to apply.  For those for-sale developments meeting requirements in the City Ordinance that do not have recorded covenants effectuating the Policy, the City's Ordinance may apply.  Consult program staff, listed below, with deal-specific questions.

  • A Citywide Inclusionary Housing Ordinance (IHO) is now in effect. Developers should review the IHO webpage for more information

The following materials are provided for developers' use in understanding the City's Inclusionary Policy and how it may apply to their development sites.
