A roof is just the beginning…
The people have declared 2019 the #Year4Housing!
With knowledge that our man-made housing crisis can have man-made solutions, voters elected into office affordable housing advocates and leaders who are guiding city, county and statewide action through policies and housing dollars that tackle the issues of homelessness, long commutes and housing scarcity for the missing middle. Affordable housing developers working in tandem with city councils, national programs and state legislators, are creating more housing opportunities for low- and middle-income families, public employees, students, agricultural workers, seniors, veterans, and households otherwise at risk of displacement or homelessness.
Spring is the season for affordable housing outreach and education.
In Northern California, Affordable Housing Month 2019 is the perfect opportunity to learn more, get involved, and invite your friends and family to join the affordable housing discussion. Weekly events provide opportunities to everyone – civic leaders, corporate teams, government staff, elected officials, the general public, local neighbors and community members – to understand our current housing challenges and identify opportunities for solutions. Join together with affordable housing supporters and advocates to make progress for #affordablehousing #homes4all!
This #AffordableHousingMonth, it’s time to deepen our work.
Different regions celebrated Affordable Housing Week last year as an educational and community building opportunity for advocates, government, practitioners and the general public. This year, join the events and tours as our advocacy partners host a month of festivities and educational opportunities highlighting the design, operation and partnerships that lead to thriving affordable housing communities. Festivities and events are around town throughout the month of May!
