California Housing Partnership’s 2019 report – California’s Affordable Rental Homes at Risk – finds that over 1000 homes throughout Sacramento County are still at risk of being lost from our affordable housing supply–and we have already lost nearly 1,000 affordable homes! Given California’s rising housing prices and cost of construction, losing affordable homes is a tragedy not only for low-income residents but also for the broader community and the state as a whole. This data underscores the need for the state to provide local governments with the funding and other tools they need to preserve these homes and for local governments to implement affordable housing preservation strategies across California. View the full report for more data on lost and at-risk affordable homes as well as recommendations for affordable housing preservation policies and strategies at the state and local level.
