Every single one of us should be able to afford a safe, comfortable home. Yet in many Bay Area communities, that basic quality of life is out of reach. Not here.
In Antioch, opportunity is everywhere. It’s our affordable homes, our bustling community and our quiet hiking paths. It’s our art and history and music and the Delta. Most of all, it’s the chance to do more than just exist—but to live.
To help ensure opportunity for Antioch neighborhoods and residents, no matter what their income level, the City is proud to financially support and partner with a number of programs provided by nonprofit agencies. Together we help protect against discrimination and ensure equitable access to fair choice in housing, support both tenants and landlords in resolving disputes, reduce evictions, provide emergency financial assistance to those who have lost or are losing housing, contribute to improving the housing stock and enhance the livability of Antioch neighborhoods, and protect housing affordability for lower income residents.
