Rental & Ownership Opportunities

Affordable Rental Housing
Poway's affordable rental housing developments are owned and operated by local nonprofit housing developers. The City of Poway and Poway Housing Authority are not directly involved in the leasing and management of these properties. For information about availability and eligibility requirements, please contact each affordable housing development directly. Please note that most of these developments have waiting lists due to high demand for affordable housing. Each of Poway's affordable housing developments participate in the Crime Free Multi-Housing Program
First-Time Homebuyer Assistance
Through Poway's Supporting Home Ownership in Poway (SHOP) first-time homebuyer program, 41 low and moderate-income households have been provided with assistance to purchase a home in Poway. New program loans are only issued when one of these participating households is sold to a qualified homebuyer. The homes are sold by the current owner, not the Poway Housing Authority.  There are currently no homes available for resale.
 
To be placed on an interest list to receive notification when a SHOP participating household is listed for sale, please email your contact information (name, address, phone, and email address) to Dianne Carrion. If you do not have access to email, you may call 858-668-4551 and provide the required information.
