State, federal housing funds to San Diego fell in 2023

May 10, 2024

California and the federal government gave San Diego County less money last year than in 2022 to build or preserve low-income housing.

Why it matters: The 13% decline in funding comes in spite of a regional shortfall of 134,537 rental homes that are affordable for some low- and very low-income households, according to a report from the California Housing Partnership and the San Diego Housing Federation.

By the numbers: San Diego County received $236 million from state housing programs in the fiscal year that ended in 2022, but that slipped to $188 million last year.
