Addressing Segregation and Unequal Access to Opportunity in California with Affordable Housing Investments: A Path Forward for a Comprehensive Approach
NEW POLICY BRIEF
State housing funding agencies recently implemented program changes to prioritize addressing residential segregation and its harmful effects, specifically through the creation of affordable housing in opportunity-rich neighborhoods.
A new policy brief from Dan Rinzler of the California Housing Partnership and José Loya of the UCLA Luskin School takes stock of these changes and proposes how the state should refine its strategy moving forward by embracing a “both/and” approach to addressing segregation and unequal access to opportunity in California.
The California Housing Partnership creates and preserves affordable and sustainable homes for Californians with low incomes by providing expert financial and policy solutions to nonprofit and public partners. Since 1988, the Partnership's on-the-ground technical assistance, applied research, and legislative leadership has leveraged $25 billion in private and public financing to preserve and create more than 75,000 affordable homes. | chpc.net
