Lottery Application Period Ended
BAAHA has opened up the application period for the 200 Linden SSF BMRs. An application deadline date has not yet been assigned an; however, we anticipate that the application period will end sometime by the third week of December. BAAHA urges everyone to submit their application as soon as possible. An electronic PDF copy of the application has been in BAAHA’s Linden webpage.
Read all application instructions prior to submitting your Lottery Application. The application is only used to determine lottery participation eligibility to purchase a BMR condo. The lottery does not provide final approval to purchase a BMR condo. Submit your lottery application as soon as possible. This will help provide BAAHA the appropriate time to respond and address any questions or concerns we have related to your application. Depending on the level of application activity, it may take BAAHA five to ten working days to respond to your application.
Lottery applicants must meet minimum eligibility requirements to participate in the lottery. These eligibility requirements are further stated in BAAHA’s Linden BMR website accessible by clicking here. A complete comprehensive publication of the City of South San Francisco’s program guidelines are provided at the City website accessible by clicking here. Pages 1 through 18 of the City’s guidelines are particularly important to review by lottery applicants. Be sure to read the BMR Program guidelines prior to submitting your application. Please do not apply for the lottery if you do not meet the minimum eligibility requirements.
Bedroom Size Eligibility
There are strict guidelines for assigning bedroom sizes to applicants. Guideline requirements include:
Low income applicants, whose household includes two or more members, should keep in mind their financial capacity to qualify for a more expensive two bedroom unit. Make certain to state your bedroom size preference in the first section (BMR Program Selection) of the BMR Lottery Application. Write the bedroom size preference next to "200 Linden" (see below).
Filling Out, Signing, and Submitting Your Linden Application
Processed and reviewed applications will be placed into one of the following three categories:
A lottery preference will be assigned to applicant households who either live or work in the City of South San Francisco. The work preference is earned when an applicant household member works for an employer that has a physical facility located in South San Francisco. The City and BAAHA realize that the COVID-19 pandemic now requires some people to work from their homes. Accordingly the household member must document they are working from home due to COVID-19. Households with a live or work preference will be provided a higher priority in the lottery.
Bedroom Size Preferences
There is no assurance that an applicant will be eligible to receive the bedroom size preference requested in their Lottery Application. Determination of eligibility for a requested preferred bedroom size will be made by the City, as part of their Program approval process.
