The City maintains two websites that deal with various aspects of housing in Alameda, Alameda Housing and the Alameda Housing Authority. Alameda Housing provides information on housing assistance programs and projects; the Housing Authority seeks ways to expand the availability of affordable housing throughout Alameda.
The Community Improvement Commission maintains a database of affordable housing within the city. As established by California Redevelopment Law, the database is updated annually. Other related documents of interest are the City's Housing Element of the General Plan and Density Bonus.
