Housing Authority of the County of Marin, "Marin
Housing" is a public corporation authorized to
provide decent, safe and sanitary housing for low and
moderate income people. We are empowered to undertake
all activities necessary to accomplish this public purpose,
including acquiring property, developing housing, issuing
tax-exempt bonds, entering into mortgages, trust indentures,
leases, condemning property, borrowing money, accepting
grants, and managing property.
Housing is separate and distinct from HUD, from county
government, and from other county and state agencies
- much like a special district. The Housing Authority
Commission currently consists of seven members - the
five members of the Board of Supervisors, and two public
housing tenants. Marin Housing operates programs in
the incorporated areas of Marin under Cooperation agreements
with the local towns and cities.
