Advancing equitable and inclusive policies to make housing more affordable for low-income workers in California
California’s high housing costs are a significant barrier to economic advancement for low-income workers and their families. Deeply rooted systemic discrimination and racially biased housing policies have led to the housing affordability crisis disproportionately impacting workers of color, who spend more of their paychecks on rent, have lower rates of homeownership, and are more likely to live in segregated neighborhoods with less economic opportunity and higher rates of poverty.
The Housing Affordability project seeks to address the housing challenges low-wage workers face by investing $40 million, to be awarded 2022-2024, to support statewide and community solutions to protect low-income renters, preserve existing affordable units, and produce new and permanently affordable homes.
