It’s not news anymore: The Bay Area has a housing crisis in need of urgent action. Homelessness is increasing exponentially, low-income workers are forfeiting the majority of their monthly income to rent and affordable homes continue to be in short supply throughout the region. Leaders from every sector have designed proposals, sponsored bills and launched coalitions to tackle the issue, but can these solutions outpace the problem and the income inequality at its core? In part one of a three-part series, we’ll discuss the complexities of the housing crisis, its proposed solutions, the impact of Prop. 13 and more. Co-presented by KQED.
