BMR Home Ownership Program


BMR Home Ownership

Our MCCDC Affordable Housing Program does not provide the HUD-approved Homebuyer Education Certification required for the Marin Housing Authority Below Market Rate (BMR) Program Application but will prepare you for this course and guide you through the steps required to find a lender and complete the paperwork to secure a pre-approval home loan and potential down deposit funds  to help you get into a home.

BMR Applicants who live or work in Marin City will receive a priority in Marin City lottery drawings for BMR units in Marin City.

How do I apply to be on the waiting list for Marin City Below Market Rate homes?

If you have any questions and would like to immediately be placed on the waiting list, please call Ms. Blia Xiong, HR Operations Director directly at (415) 339-2837 or email at [email protected] and she will respond back as soon as possible.​​


The BMR Home Ownership Program offers low and moderate-income, first-time homebuyers the opportunity to purchase. You may also be eligible for down payment assistance when you work through MCCDC.

If you would like to be added to the Marin County BMR Lottery list for this drawing, please call Ms. Kazarian, Home Ownership Programs Services Coordinator at Marin Housing Authority at (415) 491-2550.
