Housing Programs

The City of Menlo Park Housing and Redevelopment Department was eliminated when the State of California dissolved redevelopment agencies in January 2012. The City of Menlo Park continues to provide the Below Market Rate (BMR) housing program by contracting with Hello Housing for program administration.

Hello Housing is a nonprofit organization located in San Francisco that develops affordable housing and services for under-served communities. Hello Housing offers a variety of housing development, management, and administration services to help local governments achieve their housing goals. Hello Housing oversees the BMR program and serves as the point of contact for information if you have questions about the City of Menlo Park BMR program, your existing Purchase Assistance (PAL) loan, Emergency Repair (ERL) loan, or Rehab loan.
