SHA, as a member of Sacramento Investment Without Displacement, successfully advocated for the City of Sacramento to mitigate potential negative impacts, such as displacement and to ensure existing residents benefit from significant new major developments by making a significant contribution to affordable housing.
Affordable Housing – COVID 19
