From the Field: California Housing Partnership Releases 2022 Affordable Housing Needs Report

California Housing Partnership, an NLIHC state partner, released a report on the state’s affordable housing shortage and investments in housing production.

The Roadmap Home calls for establishing clear long-term goals and comprehensive systems-change strategies to ensure that the investments made today will achieve the outcomes so many Californians have been longing for, including an end to homelessness and extreme housing cost burdens.”
