Rental Program

PAHC Services, LLC administers the City of Palo Alto’s Below Market Rate (BMR) Housing Rental Program, a program that provides rental apartments for low and moderate-income households. BMR rental units are leased at rates below market rents and rent increases are subject to certain limitations. BMR renters must meet special income and other eligibility requirements.

The property managers at each project maintain separate Waiting Lists for their BMR units. If you are interested in renting a BMR unit please contact the project property managers at the numbers shown for information about waiting lists, current rents, and vacancies.
