More information about the COP Program can be found here: http://sfmohcd.org/certificate-preference.


Households in which one member holds a Displaced Tenant Housing Preference (DTHP) Certificate from the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development will be given second highest preference in the lottery ranking process, for up to 20% of the units in projects with at least 5 affordable units. DTHP certificate holders will also be included in the live/work preference regardless of their current live/work location. More information about the DTHP Program can be found here: http://sfmohcd.org/displaced-tenant-housing-preference-program-0.
