Housing Claremont serves our community by identifying needs for affordable housing and homeless services, and supporting, advocating, and coordinating programs to mitigate these needs.
We seek to contribute to alleviating housing shortages for low and very low-income residents through coordinating the development and funding of new and redeveloped housing; educating the community about housing and homelessness; and working as a local and regional advocate for these issues.

The Current Claremont City Housing Plan
Our city has committed to a Housing Element in its General Plan, approved by the state. Visit https://www.ci.claremont.ca.us/living/draft-housing-element for a comprehensive overview of the development process.
On the first page, find two key links:
“Adopted Housing Element Update – 6th Cycle”: This link opens a 345-page PDF, outlining the City Housing Plan for 2021 to 2029.
“Adopted Opportunity Sites Mapbook”: This link provides a 32-page detailed listing and maps of non-vacant sites, including church-owned sites and a National CORE-owned site at Towne and Foothill, earmarked for veteran family housing.
Explore the Housing Element for a detailed look at the city’s commitments, programs, research, and data on housing, including over 80 designated ‘Opportunity Sites’ for potential development in Claremont.
We encourage Claremont’s residents, housing advocates, and other social justice supporters to download and review the information. Residents of other cities can check their local government website for their Housing Element.
