California’s housing affordability crisis has compelled policymakers to look at unconventional ways to boost housing production across the state. Vienna has a rich tradition of building social housing — government-supported, mixed-income, rent-restricted housing — for a large portion of its residents. A recent study trip to Vienna helped demonstrate how social housing is financed, built and maintained. Hear from Bay Area housing experts who participated in this trip on how social housing works in Vienna and what lessons can be learned and applied here in California to help create more housing affordability.
