Pleasanton Home Ownership Assistance Program (PHAP) Since 1992, this program has worked to assist first-time home buyers in overcoming the obstacle of high local housing costs to be able to purchase homes in Pleasanton. The purchase of PHAP homes has generally been restricted to owner-occupant, first-time home buyers. To ensure continued affordability over time, PHAP homes include restrictions controlling the maximum sale price and maximum income of subsequent buyers when the homes are resold. PHAP homes represent a variety of housing types which have been sold at several different affordability levels. Working with local housing developers, over 120 below-market priced homes have been constructed to date. Contact Hello Housing at email@example.com or at (415) 863-3036 for more information. Hello Housing's website is www.hellohousing.org/stewardship/cityofpleasanton/homes/.
Mortgage Credit Certificate (MCC) Program Additional assistance is available through the MCC program. Using an MCC, income-eligible first-time home buyers have the opportunity to reduce the amount of federal income tax they owe each year they own and live in their home. The MCC assists a family in qualifying for a higher first mortgage, with no effect on monthly expenses. The MCC program is coordinated in Pleasanton by the Alameda County Housing and Community Development (HCD) office in cooperation with the City of Pleasanton. Interested applicants can contact the HCD office at (510) 670-5941 or via the website at www.acgov.org/cda/hcd/homeownership/mccprogram/.
