The City of Fremont's affordable housing developers are critical to providing opportunities for people of all incomes to live in our city. There are many ways developers in the City of Fremont contribute to affordable housing. Our Affordable Housing Ordinance dictates how market-rate housing mitigates its impacts on the need for affordable housing. These impact fees are posted in our Affordable Housing Fee Resolution. In order to calculate how many affordable units and/or affordable housing impact fees a proposed housing development will need to provide, you can download the Affordable Housing Calculator. The Affordable Housing Calculator is not applicable to projects using Density Bonuses.
The City offers Density Bonuses to proposed developments according to State Density Bonus Law that provide particular community benefits such as certain levels of affordable housing. Contact the Planning Department to explore your options of utilizing Density Bonuses.
