Housing Tools has over 20 years of experience producing affordable housing in California as developers, municipal administrators, and consultants. This variety of perspectives helps you develop a project that strategically leverages resources and proactively addresses potential roadblocks.

Community Development

Our first-hand experience working in the public sector provides us with an intimate understanding of local government context, challenges, and opportunities. The foundation of our work in this arena is inclusive, transparent, and constructive community outreach. Whether our efforts are homeless initiatives, housing plans, fund development, or policy analysis and evaluation, we are eager to help you make your community more vibrant and equitable.
