Solving the Problem

California has implemented various bills and measures to support affordable housing and prevent homelessness, but the crisis is too significant for the public sector alone to tackle. Other states have incentivized financial institutions to invest in housing strategies and meet the financial needs of low- and moderate-income communities. It’s time for California to ensure that corporations doing business in the state play a role in deploying private capital to meet the housing needs of our communities.
