How to Apply
In addition to partnering with cities & counties to provide free services in exchange for affordable rents, you can also hire Hello Housing’s team to get your project moving.
If you are ready now and think our services could be helpful for your project, please schedule a free 20-minute consultation to 1) learn more about our services and approach and (2) share with us what supports you are seeking to help determine if we are a good fit.
Thank you for your interest in applying to Bright in Your Own Backyard! We are now accepting applications on a rolling basis for homeowners living in the cities of East Palo Alto, Pacifica, Redwood City or the unincorporated areas of San Mateo County. All eligible rolling applications will be added to an active waitlist for each jurisdiction in the order that they are received. To the extent that we have spots available at a future date, we will draw from the Bright In Your Own Backyard waitlist and notify the waitlist applicant of the opportunity to move forward in the selection process.
Please note that at this time, this offering is only available to homeowners living in their homes located in the cities of East Palo Alto, Pacifica, Redwood City or the unincorporated areas of San Mateo County. We hope to expand our offering to other cities, so please subscribe to our ADU newsletter, The Bright Spot, for updates and complete this expansion request form to let us know your city and type of services you would like to see made available.
