HCV Program Update
The San Francisco Housing Authority (SFHA) continues working diligently to ensure that we provide essential services while following the San Francisco Department of Public Health's directive to limit any exposure to COVID-19. To continue to serve you, we, like other City and County of San Francisco departments, have taken the following immediate actions:
No Visits at the SFHA Office
Due to COVID-19, we are not currently accepting visits at our office. However, you may drop off documents at our office (1815 Egbert Avenue) by using the drop box outside the main entrance. You can also fax documents to us at 415-820-1586 or e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Requests for Immediate Needs Only, Please
Due to reduced staffing, we are focusing on:
- Interim recertification requests for rent reductions
- Emergency moves due to your home being uninhabitable
- Inspections for new move-ins
You may request any of these services or submit a Request for Tenancy Approval in any of these ways:
- E-mail to email@example.com; response within 48 hours of receipt

Call Center Remains Staffed: (415) 715-5200
Our call center is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. to assist you with your questions and provide continued needed service. We expect longer than normal hold times because of a high volume of calls. We are committed to answering your call as quickly as possible and will continue to monitor our wait times to ensure we are answering calls within a reasonable timeframe.
