To improve access to affordable housing opportunities administered through the Housing Authority of the County of San Mateo (HACSM), we use an online portal called Rent Café PHA which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The link to the portal is: Rent Cafe portal

Applicants can register on the portal to be considered for tenant-based rental assistance or project-based rental assistance when wait lists are open. Once applicants click on the above link to the portal, they click Applicant Login in the upper right corner of the screen.
