Fair Chance Housing Ordinance

The City of Oakland has adopted a Fair Chance for Housing Ordinance (FCO) which outlines what and how housing providers can ask regarding the criminal records of applicants seeking housing. Granite Pointe has adapted our leasing policies to reflect the FCO criteria, which include:

  1. Denial of housing due to criminal history only on the grounds of: a) The production of methaenphetamines on federal housing property, and b) Lifetime Sex Offender Registry;
  2. Criminal history will only be sought after the household has met all other eligibility criteria.
