We Advocate for Affordable Workforce HomeownershipAs rent and mortgage prices continue to rise throughout the state of California, we must advocate for additional funding sources, regulatory reforms, and the creation of more homeownership opportunities for lower income, working families.
How You Can HelpElected officials listen to the priorities of the people they represent, so speak up! Contact your elected representatives and community leaders to share the positive impact that safe, sustainable and affordable homes have on millions of Americans each year and urge responsible policies that will address the serious lack of affordable housing throughout the state.
