Below Market Rate (BMR) Housing Program- Rental & Purchase
The City of Cupertino generates affordable housing units through its Housing Mitigation Program. BMR for-sale units are made available to median and moderate-income households. BMR rental units are made available to low and very low-income households.
The Housing Mitigation Manual establishes procedures to implement housing mitigation as required by the General Plan 2014-2022 Housing Element. This manual consists of two major components, Section One addressing the office and industrial mitigation and Section Two addressing residential housing mitigation.
The City of Cupertino contracts with West Valley Community Services (WVCS) to screen and place qualified households in city BMR units. WVCS maintains a waiting list of interested persons for these BMR units. If interested, contact WVCS or 408.255.8033 and leave your name, phone number, number of persons in your household and the type of unit (rental or purchase) that you are interested in occupying.
Developers constructing new housing in the City of Cupertino may refer to the Housing Mitigation Manual or contact the Planning Department at 408.777.3308 for more information on the program regulations.
