New Grant to Document Displacement of Low-Income People of Color in the Bay Area

The California Housing Partnership is pleased to announce a $100,000, one-year grant from The San Francisco Foundation to document the relationship between rental housing affordability and patterns of displacement, segregation, and unequal access to opportunity for low-income people of color in the Bay Area since 2000. The Urban Displacement Project at UC Berkeley will be our partner on this project, which will conclude with publication of our findings in spring 2018.

Our analysis will be unique in its focus on the relationship between rental housing price changes and census tract-level demographic changes, although we will also analyze county- and regional-level patterns—with an emphasis on San Francisco, Contra Costa, and Alameda Counties. As such, our intent is to generate evidence to inform targeted, neighborhood-level housing funding and policy interventions in the Bay Area that are “place-conscious” in the context of broader trends.
