L.A. County Affordable Housing Solutions Agency (LACAHSA) implementationSB 679
This first-of-its-kind, independent agency will create and preserve affordable housing countywide—while also protecting renters from eviction. Alongside our partners in the Our Future LA coalition, we got this bill passed in 2022. Our next step is to fully staff the agency so it can hit the ground running—and get a measure on the 2024 ballot to fund their work long term.
Measure United to House LA implementation
This bill establishes a one-time 4 – 5.5% tax on all property sales of $5 million or more in order to fund new affordable housing, homelessness prevention for seniors, and legal representation for renters facing illegal eviction. Voters passed this in 2022, and now we’re pushing to get it implemented.
City budget advocacy
Mayor Bass’s proposed $1.3 billion investment in homelessness services is a historic opportunity for the city. We’re working to make sure the money is put to use swiftly and effectively—and advocating for ongoing funding that goes beyond these one-time commitments.
Affordable Housing on Faith Lands ActSB 4
Through this bill, higher education institutions and faith-based organizations statewide would be allowed to build affordable housing on their land—opening up the potential for thousands of new housing units.
Older Adults and Adults with Disabilities Housing Stability ActSB 37
This would reduce senior homelessness by creating a housing subsidy program to keep vulnerable seniors and adults with disabilities housed.
End the Foster Care-to-Homelessness Pipeline ActAB 963
By funding new affordable housing for current and former foster youth between the ages of 18 and 25, this policy would help young people transition successfully out of the foster care system.
