Inclusionary Housing Program

The City of Livermore’s Inclusionary Housing Program (also known as the Affordable Homeownership Program) 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 any affordable homeownership opportunities as they become available, please add your contact information to our Affordable Homeownership Opportunities Interest List.

At this time there are no Affordable Homeownership Opportunities available.

 If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at (925) 960-4580 or by email.

Neighborhood Stabilization Program

The Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) powered by $7 million from the Federal Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, provides targeted emergency assistance to state and local governments to acquire and completely renovate foreclosed residential properties that might otherwise become sources of abandonment and blight within our communities.

The City of Livermore, along with the City of Berkeley, Fremont, San Leandro and Union City, has been allocated $2,230,495 in NSP funds through the State of
California to purchase and completely renovate foreclosed properties in selected areas .  The Cities have partnered with Hello Housing to facilitate the purchase and renovations. These homes, once renovated will then be sold to income eligible, first-time homebuyers.
Find more information
