Update on Our Campaign to Save Affordable Housing

Unfortunately, the Budget Conference Committee has voted to eliminate $1 billion in annual funding for affordable housing that assists California Habitat affiliates in procuring land for low-income homeownership housing. All is not lost.

Senator DeSaulnier has proposed an amendment that balances California’s budget and protects affordable housing as a core service. Now is the time to ask Governor Brown and your legislators to include this proposal in the final budget. Read our full proposal.

How can you help? Please contact Governor Brown and your legislators today.

Call Governor Brown's office (Here’s a script to help).
State Capitol office: 916.445.2841 -- if line is busy, try the following field offices
Los Angeles field office: 213.897.0322
San Francisco field office: 415.703.2218

Send a message to the Governor directly: Governor Brown’s contact page.

Call your legislators (Here’s a script to help).
Visit this website to look up your legislators.

Last, there is still time to sign our petition.

Thank you for helping save affordable housing in California!
