The City of Oakland Department of Housing and Community Development (City) sought proposals for permanent and/or interim affordable housing for homeless and formerly homeless individuals and households through a Request for Proposals (City Homekey RFP). Only teams that were qualified through the City’s previous 2021 Homekey Request for Qualifications (RFQ) process were eligible to submit proposals through this RFP. Qualified Homekey teams are posted below:
- Through this RFP, the City selected projects to co-apply with sponsors to the State Homekey NOFA. The City will be the lead applicant on all Oakland Homekey projects. Teams must co-apply with the City and cannot apply to the State Homekey NOFA outside of the City's RFP process.
- Although the State is offering pre-consultations for potential applicants, the City will use this RFP to determine which projects will move forward to schedule pre-consultations with the State. Teams should not attempt to schedule pre-consultations with the State before their project has been selected to move forward through this RFP.
- The City encourages teams to visit the State Homekey webpage for training and other program materials.
