About the Rent Adjustment Program

The Oakland City Council adopted the Rent Adjustment Program Ordinance (OMC Chapter 8.22) in 1980. This ordinance sets the maximum annual rent increase based on the annual CPI increase, handles rent adjustments for claims of decreases in housing services and handles other rent related matters. The purpose of this program is to foster fair housing for a diverse population of renters and enforce the Rent Adjustment Ordinance set out by the City of Oakland.

You can also contact a Rent Program Housing Counselor by calling (510) 238-3721 or visiting during drop-in hours at the Housing Resource Center on the 6th Floor of 250 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza See the their webpage for more information.
