Working Together to Enhance Your Quality of Life

When our neighborhoods are safe and thriving, our residents prosper, the local economy grows, and there is a sense of shared pride. We believe that a great neighborhood means opportunities for a diversity of people at all income levels to live and grow, neighbors knowing and supporting each other, and residents, business owners, and the City, working as partners to enhance

 the quality of life.

Access to decent, affordable housing can improve education, employment and physical and mental health outcomes for individuals and families.  The City of Chula Vista is in the process of developing its long term strategic plan for housing and determining how to use its housing dollars.   Your voice matters!   Take 10 minutes to share your thoughts at


Assistance During COVID-19

NEW Update:  Emergency Order to extend our Eviction Moratorium through July 31, 2020

EVICTION MORATORIUM - Delay in Rent/Mortgage Payment

On March 17, 2020, the Chula Vista City Council enacted a temporary eviction moratorium in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The moratorium provides eviction protection for residents and commercial tenants and is in effect through June 30th as extended by the Chula Vista City Council.  Please visit the Housing Division’s Measures to Support During COVID-19 website to learn more about the ordinance.


Many individuals and families have been impacted by the outbreak and more will continue to be affected. The San Diego Foundation has established a COVID-19 Community Response Fund to provide resources to nonprofit organizations with deep roots in supporting vulnerable communities across San Diego County. If you are a San Diego resident in need of assistance with rental, mortgage and utility assistance, please apply for assistance with the United Way's Worker Assistance Initiative. To get information about other resources and support in San Diego, contact 211 San Diego to be directed to a service provider. Other community resources click here.

Rental Assistance:   South Bay Community Services (SBCS)

South Bay Community Services is in support of families in need as the COVID-19 pandemic persists. In partnership with the City of Chula Vista, SBCS is currently accepting applications for a rental assistance program to help lower-income households in Chula Vista who are facing financial hardship due to the effects of COVID-19. Please see SBCS’ website for eligibility requirements and application for the program. Please note that this program is funded through federal funds and therefore certain program restrictions will apply. 


Our mission is to build strong families and to strengthen the social and physical fabric of the Chula Vista community by creating and sustaining decent, safe and affordable living environments to foster stability in the home and the neighborhood and empowering our diverse residents as change agents for their quality of life.

Can I be Your Neighbor?

San Diego County is one of the most unaffordable places to live in the country.  Entry level professionals like our teachers, medical workers and police officers are finding fewer options for living near their work.  Families are doubling up.  Living with roommates is the norm.  Kids are moving back home.  Seniors with long established roots in the community are moving out of state for cheaper housing.

SAY YES to quality Homes for all Incomes, In all Areas!   See our updates to Policies and Programs to have your opinion heard and considered when it comes to Housing for All in All Areas of our community.
