Lunchtime Forum

As housing costs continue to rise throughout California, leaders from across the state are looking for ways to reduce both building costs and home prices. In Southern California, organizations like the Housing Innovation Collaborative are working to bring together diverse ideas in order to produce high-quality, but less expensive housing. One of their initiatives, the Essential Housing Campaign, acts as a catalyst to concentrate resources and stakeholders and streamline the process under which 130,000 new homes could be built for middle-income households in Los Angeles by 2030. Join us to learn how that initiative is addressing the housing crisis head on, and how it could be emulated here in the Bay Area.
