Virtual Workshops: Investing in the Future of Bay Area Housing

Learn about the Bay Area’s proposed regional bond measure to invest in the production and preservation of affordable housing.

The Bay Area needs to create more affordable housing – a lot of it. The region must plan for more than 180,000 new affordable homes by 2031. Tackling this problem in the coming years is key to making the region more affordable for the 7.7 million people who call the Bay Area home. Building at this scale and meeting the affordable housing demand is a tall order – one that will require robust, regionally coordinated public investment.

The Bay Area Housing Finance Authority (BAHFA) was created to help solve the affordable housing shortage, and is considering a bond measure for the November 2024 ballot to invest in building and preserving affordable homes.

Virtual Workshops

Two virtual workshops were held for all members of the public to learn about the proposed housing measure, ask questions and provide feedback to BAHFA.

What’s Next

BAHFA’s governing boards are holding a series of public meetings on the proposed bond through spring 2024. These meetings include discussions on BAHFA’s spending plan for its share of proposed bond funding and will ultimately determine whether to place the housing measure on the 2024 ballot. The public is encouraged to participate and help inform all key decision points.

View the schedule of upcoming public meetings related to 2024 Bay Area housing bond.

Each county and city receiving a direct allocation of funding will also hold separate public meetings for their local share of any voter-approved regional bond.
