2017: The Year of Housing? Affordable Housing and Beyond

California’s housing crisis continues to worsen as more than thirty percent of homeowners and nearly half of all renters spend more than one-third of their household income on housing. Populations critical to thriving cities—teachers, service workers and first responders—are at the forefront of the struggle and the state’s rate of homelessness remains higher than the national average. Join us for a day-long exploration of the legal challenges facing housing strategies, including lessons from other states and the status of recently adopted and potential state legislation to come.
