San José Directs Affordable Housing Programs to Address Segregation and Unequal Access to High Opportunity Areas
Guided by a report and subsequent analysis co-produced by the California Housing Partnership and the Othering & Belonging Institute, the City of San José adopted a policy on December 6th to address persistent patterns of segregation and unequal access to neighborhoods where residents experience better life outcomes. The new policy will place more affordable housing in San José's well-resourced neighborhoods while directing a more comprehensive set of investments – including, but not limited to affordable housing – to its lower-resourced communities.
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
