The Oaktown Roots Story

These new homes in Oakland are built on properties that were formerly abandoned, tax-defaulted lots. An innovative interagency pilot program led by Hello Housing, the City of Oakland and the Alameda County Tax Collector has resulted in the reclamation of these once-blighted properties for productive re-use as permanently affordable ownership housing. Learn more about the innovative program behind these new homes.

If you are interested in applying for these homes contact the City of Oakland.
