Why This Matters

What You'll Learn: 

  • What is the current cost of one unit of affordable housing in Los Angeles and how does that pricing compare to other cities across the region?
  • The state of California needs 1.8 million new housing units by 2025, but is only producing about 80,000 units on average each year, according to the Department of Housing and Community Development. How are developers and architects working together to build affordable housing quickly?
  • How are affordable housing owners responding to rent forbearance?
  • According to a new report from the nonpartisan nonprofit California Housing Partnership, more than 10,000 homes in LA County are likely to lose their affordability restrictions in the next decade. What programs are owners of affordable housing putting in place to help their residents?
  • What outside-the-box ideas do developers have to help lower the per-unit cost of affordable housing?
