Data for Progress--Homes Guarantee

Report lays the groundwork for a housing policy capable of ending the crisis. It should be a guide for policymakers and voters alike. Homes for All calls for ending racist exclusionary zoning, building 7-to-10 million new social homes, offering immediate relief for renters, and de-commodifying housing. These policy pillars aren’t just necessary — they are popular with the public.


Urban Institute

The Urban Institute is a nonprofit research organization that provides data and evidence to help advance upward mobility and equity. We are a trusted source for changemakers who seek to strengthen decisionmaking, create inclusive economic growth, and improve the well-being of families and communities. For more than 50 years, Urban has delivered facts that inspire solutions—and this remains our charge today.


State Bill to follow--AB 2053

AB 2053, the California Social Housing Act of 2022 would establish a statewide social-housing program responsible for eliminating the gap between housing need and housing production. The bill would ensure that no Californian pays more than 30% of their annual income on housing costs by the year 2050. Moreover, all housing units produced would be protected for the duration of their existence from being sold or transferred to the private real estate market, ensuring permanent affordability.
