An estimated 161,000 unhoused individuals live in California, more than a quarter of the nationwide total (580,000) according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. While the state's acute housing affordability crisis is decades in the making, we are at a tipping point to take the steps necessary to turn the tide. Governor Gavin Newsom's recent California Comeback Plan includes a historic $22 billion worth of investments in affordable housing and other strategies to address homelessness.
Join Philanthropy California for a session on emerging initiatives to build housing that is affordable and equitable. We'll discuss affordable housing development in the state and explore different investment strategies. Curious about approaches that prioritize people who are disproportionately experiencing the impacts of housing instability? This session is for you.
