Launched as a collaborative of jurisdictions of San Mateo County that wish to increase housing/affordable housing, the Center will provide virtual and in-person services to help homeowners design, build, and lease ADUs. In addition, the Center will work directly with jurisdictions to improve their ADU policies and practices.
