Mixed Income Housing Development Bonus (MIHDB)
In the MF and MU districts, the development bonus and number of reserved units required to attain that bonus vary by the location of the development under the City's Market Value Analysis (MVA) Categories. Properties in A, B, and C categories are required to serve families at lower income levels than properties in G, H, and I categories. The percent of reserved units is related to the amount of the bonus requested, and the income ranges depend on the MVA category. In planned development districts (PDs), the bonus and the reserved units vary by district.
To get started, check the City's unofficial online zoning map to see if your development is in one of the eligible base zoning districts or a participating planned development district (PD). If your development is in a PD, you can look up the PD language HERE.
If your development is in an eligible zoning district, contact Housing staff to get started. If you are applying to change the zoning, contact the Current Planning staff for assistance.
How to Apply:
Contact Housing staff and ask for a Market Value Analysis (MVA) verification form. This serves as an application form for the program and includes information about the owner, developer, proposed project, requested bonuses, and required reserved units (including required Area Median Incomes to be served).
