The cost of living in the Bay Area has reached new heights in recent years. Those making modest incomes can no longer live in central Bay Area CBD's. As a result, the income gap between rich and poor is growing as well.
New affordable homes need to be built, but still, there are not enough. Bisnow's Julie Littman writes, "Over the last 10 years, the state has produced 80,000 housing units each year, falling far short of the 180,000 homes needed annually to meet demand, according to a report from California Housing and Community Development. The state’s population is expected to reach 50 million by 2050."
This event is positioned to hear from those that are pushing the new frontiers of affordable housing and community solutions.
I implore you all to join us to hear about how we can all help support those in need. For questions, concerns or topic recommendations please email Jeff.Arthur@bisnow.com.
