Greetings from Supervisor Haubert

Dear District 1,

While the Board of Supervisors is in recess until September 20, our work with the community has only accelerated. We have many exciting events and projects in the pipeline that could not have happened without your help, and we will continue to rely on your input as we move forward.

As always, if there is anything that my office can do to assist you regarding County-specific matters, please feel free to reach out at bosdist1@acgov.org

State of the County Address 


Thank you to the Livermore Chamber of Commerce for inviting me to present my State of the County Address where we discussed important East County issues ranging from homelessness and economic development, to transportation improvements. As a public servant and as your elected representative for the County of Alameda, I am committed to keeping you up-to-date on our community building initiatives.

Is there an issue or topic you would like my office to address? Click here to email me!

COVID-19 Relief

ARPA collage

In response to COVID-19, Alameda County launched the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Supervisorial District Community Needs Cash Aid Grants program. The third round of District 1 ARPA grants has provided much-needed relief to the local businesses and non-profits featured above. For information on how to apply, click here!

"The COVID-19 lockdowns hit our small businesses and non-profits particularly hard, so I'm thrilled to see these funds help them get back on their feet."

home match

Home Match is a free, non-profit home sharing program of Front Porch Communities and Services that connects Home Providers (homeowners and master tenants) looking to rent a room in their home or apartment/ ADU on their property with Home Seekers looking for affordable housing options. Home Match is a high-touch service that vets and gets to know both program participants and facilitates matches based on shared lifestyle preferences and communication styles.

Home Match serves anyone over 18, but most of our Home Providers are older adults who need financial support through rent and, or social support through companionship and task exchange to age in place. Most of our Home Seekers are older adults living on a fixed income and working class professionals looking for affordable housing options close to work. Home Match provides comprehensive services, including room readiness support, vetting of participants, personalized matching services, assistance with developing agreements about shared use of space, and ongoing mediation support throughout the match.

For more information on Home Match services, please visit their website at (https://covia.org/programs/home-match/) or contact their team at HomeMatchAlameda@FrontPorch.net or 510.574.2173.
