Preserving Housing in the Bay Area and Beyond

Approximately 280,000 low-income households across the Bay Area live in unsubsidized housing at risk of becoming unaffordable due to rent increases. What can policymakers do to help stabilize housing costs for these families in order to keep them housed? A new report from Enterprise Community Partners, Preserving Affordability, Preventing Displacement: Acquisition-Rehabilitation of Unsubsidized Affordable Housing in the Bay Area, offers best practices for the design and implementation of local acquisition-rehab preservation programs. What will it take to follow these recommendations and prevent an even greater loss of unsubsidized affordable homes? This project has been made possible in part by a grant from Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
