San Francisco’s DAHLIA Housing Portal, a product developed out of a civic-tech partnership, is making it easier for residents to apply for affordable housing. Instead of submitting reams of paper applications for competitive housing lotteries, potential residents can now complete applications online in a matter of minutes. Join us to learn about the portal and how it could benefit residents of Santa Clara County.
