We provide affordable housing for families, seniors and people with disabilities.

 The Chicano Federation has been my home for 22 years! We are very happy here because it’s safe and tranquil, and the Federation has been more than just a housing provider to me and my family. They are there to provide social resources when we’ve needed them.

Step 1: Research each property based on location and age restrictions.
Step 2: Download the application and email it to ResourceCenter@ChicanoFederation.org.
Step 3: Once you’re application has been received, the Chicano Federation team will call you to assess your housing and supportive needs. It is during this time that the staff will determine eligibility to move on to Step 4.
Step 4: Meet with our property management team to arrange a tour of vacant properties and finalize the process for housing approval.
