2022 Aging and Disability Affordable Housing Community Needs Assessment

Help improve affordable housing services for older people and adults with disabilities in San Francisco.

Are you an older person or an adult with a disability? If so, tell us what you think about the City’s housing services for your community by participating in the 2022 Aging and Disability Affordable Housing Needs Assessment.

The Needs Assessment relies on community input to evaluate the affordable housing system and recommend improvements over the next three years.  We also welcome participation by caretakers and community organizations.

About the Affordable Housing Needs Assessment and Pipeline Report

The Department of Disability and Aging Services (DAS) conducts the Affordable Housing Needs Assessment every three years to understand the housing needs for low and moderate-income older people and adults with disabilities and recommend improvements to the affordable housing system.

The 2022 Affordable Housing Needs Assessment report—the City’s first—will be released in October.  The report will be based on community input from a citywide survey, community forums, focus groups, and in-depth interviews, as well as on population and service data.

The Needs Assessment is conducted in partnership with the Mayor’s Office on Housing and Community Development (MOHCD), the Mayor’s Office on Disability (MOD), the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH), and the SFHSA Planning Department. NOTE: Although DAS conducts the Needs Assessment, SFHSA does not provide housing.
