Housing Advocacy

MTC works with state legislators to craft funding and policy solutions that can help solve the Bay Area’s housing crisis.

MTC regularly convenes housing industry leaders, government officials and equity advocates to discuss regional housing solutions.

MTC’s areas of responsibility include making sure transportation investments work with housing and development.

Plan Bay Area — drafted by MTC and the Association of Bay Area Governments — is the region’s long-range transportation and land use plan.

It outlines strategies for transportation, housing, the economy and the environment to make the Bay Area more equitable and more resilient to unexpected challenges. MTC staff fight for the policies and strategies that will help fix the region’s housing crisis.


BAHFA is a first-of-its-kind regional authority created to address the Bay Area’s chronic housing challenges. BAHFA is authorized to raise funds and implement solutions to support more housing in the nine-county region.
