New San Mateo County Information and Referral Service

In 2001, the County of San Mateo created a Landlord and Tenant Information and Referral Collaborative. It was a partnership of nonprofit and public entities which operated cooperatively to provide a range of services addressing landlord and tenant concerns and issues in San Mateo County. In an effort to address the community’s need for timely, accurate, and accessible information about landlord/tenant issues and concerns, the Department of Housing received Measure A funding from the County of San Mateo to re-ignite services related to landlord and tenant information.

Project Sentinel has been selected as the vendor to provide this service to landlords and/or tenants in the County of San Mateo, who will now be able to ask questions and review Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and other information on their rights and responsibilities.

You can contact Project Sentinel at:
