Burbank Housing Corporation
Burbank Housing Corporation (BHC) is a private, non-profit housing developer that operates an Affordable Housing Program, four After-School Activity Centers, and two Nationally Accredited Child Care Centers.
Chartered in 1997 with the assistance of the City of Burbank’s Redevelopment Agency, BHC has impacted the Burbank community and housed hundreds of low-income and moderate-income families in our 300+ affordable rental units.
Our mission is to preserve, upgrade, and develop affordable housing opportunities in Burbank and to provide a safe, service-enriched environment for the residents in our communities.
BHC prides itself in maintaining high-quality, attractive & safe properties for families, although many seniors and persons with disabilities also form part of our communities.
Our efforts to provide larger units and to create our After-School Activity Centers, where children can participate in our after-school mentoring and tutoring program, demonstrates our emphasis on families.
BHC owns multiple residential properties in 5 Focus Neighborhoods in Burbank and operates a waiting list system to fill all of its vacancies. Our Affordable Housing Program has four waiting lists that are categorized by income level. The State of California for Los Angeles County establishes the income requirements for each level.
Our Affordable Housing Program has fixed rent rates based on the tenant’s income level and tenants are responsible for paying their monthly rent in its entirely.
In order to enter our Affordable Housing Program, interested applicants must first apply for an open waiting list. Learn if your household qualifies for an open waiting list: HERE
A professional property management company is contracted to administer and manage our properties. Residents are required to sign and live up to a comprehensive rental agreement that includes an anti-drug and crime policy. Residents are also required to provide yearly income certifications, ensuring that the units are being occupied by the household for which they are intended.
Regulatory agreements ensure that the units will remain affordable to low and moderate income residents in perpetuity. These agreements also regulate the manner and condition in which residents maintain their units. Yearly unit inspections are conducted both by City staff and by BHC’s agents and any deficiencies are promptly corrected. BHC keeps a capital replacement reserve fund to allow for major repair and systems replacements as the years go by.
