The Housing and Human Services Division of the City of Livermore work to maintain and expand housing opportunities for lower to moderate-income households throughout the City.

Inclusionary Housing Program

The City of Livermore’s Inclusionary Housing Program (also known as the Affordable Homeownership Program (AHP) and Below Market Rate Program (BMR)) is an important part of the City’s overall affordable housing program.Over the years, the Inclusionary program has provided residents with a valuable source of affordable ownership housing that would not have been achievable by other means.  There are several homes in Livermore that were built under the City's Inclusionary Housing Program to be affordable for very-low to moderate income first-time home buyers. These homes become available for purchase by eligible buyers when new developments are built or when existing homeowners decide to sell. These homes have resale restrictions, that restrict the way in which the buyer can resell the home. For more information about this program or other homeownership programs, please contact Frances Reisner, Housing Specialist at (925) 960-4580 or by email at  If you would like to be notified of affordable homeownership opportunities as they become available, please add your contact information to our Affordable Homeownership Opportunities Interest List.
