BHA Office Move: In mid-December, BHA’s offices will be moving to 1947 Center Street, 5thFloor.  The new office space is just a few blocks from our current site, close to City offices, near the post office, and along BART and AC Transit lines.  Some changes will be implemented with the new setting: in order to meet with staff (when safe to do so), appointments must be made in advance. Just like our current office setting, there will be a designated place for BHA paperwork submission.  Do not worry, however, if you send your paperwork to our old address, it will still arrive for us, as we will be forwarding our mail. 


The quickest way to submit paperwork and documents will be by email:
