The Purple House, one of the pioneer co-ops under the San Francisco Community Land Trust is opening their home to share their experiences in co-operative living with other SFCLT residents and to strengthen their network within the community.

Wine, soft drinks, snacks will be served.  There will be much sharing of art and music and maybe a bit of theater performed by the residents. Kick it up with them and get to known other Land Trust
residents, exchange ideas on intentional living and share practical information on accessing energy efficiency in their home.


SFCLT Vacancy: One-Bedroom Apt Affordable for up to 120% AMI

Affordable Apartment for Rent in San Francisco

 One 1 BR affordable rental units available

568-570 Natoma Street, San Francisco (Unit 568A)


SFCLT and SOMCAN are delighted to have stabilized this 5-unit building at 568-570 Natoma this month, but as soon as we closed escrow we received 30-day notice of move-out from one of the high-income earning households, so we have one vacancy available for immediate move-in. The rent has been targeted by the Small Site Program as affordable up to 114% AMI, which may not meet the needs of your clients, but please share this opportunity with your members!


As you may know, as part of the City's "Small Site Acquisition & Rehab" program, SFCLT ensures that the existing lower rents, affordable for households earning less than 70% AMI, can be preserved as "permanently affordable" into the future by using the "mixed-income" approach. To preserve one rent-controlled unit that's occupied and affordable at 70% AMI, the building needs the next vacant unit to be rented at a higher rent price, but not to exceed what's affordable at 120% AMI. In this way, the 120% AMI household is helping to subsidize the lower income households’ rents within the building.

Within this context, we are delighted to offer a 1 Bedroom unit for $2,398 available to households at or under 114% of median income. Renter household must earn no more than the income levels listed below:

Household Size

One Person

Two Person

Three Person

114% of Median Income 2015
