Create & Maintain Long-Term Housing
Our current portfolio of affordable housing totals 311 units. The central goal of the Housing Program of EPA CAN DO is to create and maintain long-term affordable housing that improves the quality of life for the residents of East Palo Alto. Through the creation of a more safe, clean and beautiful physical environment we promote healthy lifestyles and families. In order for EPA CAN DO to achieve its objectives of building affordable multi-family housing we had to partner with other non-profit housing organizations. Through this collaboration we developed housing projects which include affordable and market rate housing in East Palo Alto totaling 375 units.
