State Policy

The Partnership works to support policies and improve programs that increase financial resources to serve low-income renters in California. This includes working in close collaboration with regional and statewide housing associations to assess housing-related state legislation, to advocate for permanent sources of state funding for affordable housing, and to interface with state regulatory bodies to increase equitable access to energy efficiency resources for affordable multifamily rental housing.
