Santa Rosa's Housing and Community Services department offers a variety of housing programs to provide safe, sanitary affordable housing for very low- and low-income Santa Rosans. HUD-subsidized rental housing is administered through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program for qualified families and individuals, while a variety of additional opportunities are administered through the Santa Rosa Housing Trust.

Overseen by the Santa Rosa Housing Authority, the Trust partners with many private sector organizations to develop affordable rental housing projects. Typically restricted to very low- and low-income households, these projects are scattered throughout Santa Rosa. The Trust has sponsored over 3,700 units in Santa Rosa; a partial list is here.

The Trust is also responsible for the mobilehome rent control program, homeownership programs and referrals, and providing funding for homeless shelters and programs.
