The Santa Barbara Rental Property Association was founded in 1929 to provide assistance to local property owners.
"SBRPA does more than advocate for property owners and managers. As your advocates we have an obligation to the community at large, and nowhere is this more evident than in our collaboration with the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara, the County of Santa Barbara Housing Authority, and organizations like Transition House. Both the City and County Housing Authorities are members of SBRPA, which allows us to provide mutually beneficial services to each other that keep our organization strong and helps the Housing Authority grow its inventory of affordable housing in their geographic areas." Jim Carrillo, 2019 SBRPA President
