Preserving Affordable Housing Near Transit in Fremont – Summary and Recommendations

This memo summarizes the policy, data, and spatial analysis that Reconnecting America (RA) and the California Housing Partnership Corporation (CHPC) completed for the City of Fremont with the goal of helping the City of Fremont identify highest-priority affordable housing preservation areas near transit stations as well as the most effective strategies to prevent the displacement of low-income households.

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission funded this report through the Housing the Workforce Initiative of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Regional Prosperity Plan. The overall goal of this work is to identify a set of solutions to minimize the impact of increasing market pressures due to transit investments and related planning and transportation enhancements on low income residents living and working in Fremont.
