United Way Monterey County is working to increase the number of affordable housing options in Monterey County and is focusing on Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) as a strategy to do so. We are currently looking for homeowners inquiring about and/or starting the ADU planning and building process. We would like to learn from you and understand the challenges you may be facing.
We are working with local jurisdictions to create ADU-specific resources that will be helpful to homeowners. Your input will be instrumental in creating these tools. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. We are happy to connect with you and hear your stories. If you currently own a property with an ADU, please fill out the survey here instead.
