About the Bridging Affordability Program: Bridging Affordability is an integral component of the FY 2011 Housing Blueprint. The program is designed to provide funding to non-profits, via a competitive process, for use as rental subsidies and as capital for the acquisition of additional affordable units to address the homelessness and waiting list goals of the Blueprint. In FY 2011, it is expected that these funds will serve approximately 48 homeless individuals and families, and about 364 households on the county’s affordable housing waiting lists.
