C100 prioritizes preservation of the city’s existing housing stock and expansion of the inventory of new affordable housing with family-sized units of 2-3+ bedrooms for the most vulnerable residents in all parts of the city. We focus on how the city sets affordable housing goals, the enabling legislation supporting those goals, who is served and who is not served through implementation of affordable housing programs, and the track record of achievement.
