County of Alameda Community Helper
1949 - 2021
Alameda County honors the life and legacy of Supervisor Wilma Chan.
We remember her as a champion of community, a fierce leader, and a trusted colleague.
The first Asian American to serve on our Board of Supervisors and as majority leader in the California State Assembly, Wilma was a champion for health care coverage for all, senior services, early childhood education, environmental health, jobs, and economic development.
A distinguished leader, colleague and friend. Wilma’s contributions to our diverse communities and legacy will live on for generations.
Plans are underway for a public celebration of Supervisor Chan's life in December 2021 and a memorial fund to support her legacy.
TTC's Offices Remain Closed
As we continue our efforts to ensure the health and safety of the public and our staffs, The Treasurer-Tax Collector's offices in Oakland and Hayward will remain closed until further notice. They are not conducting in-person visits to collect property taxes; any attempts to collect in-person payments are fraudulent. The TTC accepts payments online, by mail, or over the telephone. Also, you can place your check payment in the drop box located at the lobby of the County Administration Building at 1221 Oak St. Oakland or through the mail slot at the Business License Tax Office at 224 W. Winton Ave., Room 169, Hayward. PLEASE HAVE YOUR CHECK COMPLETELY FILLED OUT AND SEALED IN THE ENVELOPE WHEN PLACING IN THE DROP BOX TO AVOID A LARGE GATHERING OF PEOPLE WHILE YOU COMPLETE YOUR CHECK IN THE LOBBY.

Help Us Fight COVID-19
Our Board of Supervisors has reactivated the Disaster Relief Fund. Due to the enormous and varied needs facing the community and the health care systems at this time, the county has established two separate funds. The Emergency Fund will provide needed services to those directly affected by the pandemic. The Recovery Fund will be used to purchase personal protective equipment and other supplies to assist those fighting the pandemic. You can also donate personal protective equipment.
