Why invest cap-and-trade funds in Affordable Housing & Sustainable Communities

As a member of the campaign’s advisory committee, I am excited to announce the launch of the investAHSC campaign website to advocate for the Affordable Housing & Sustainable Communities (AHSC) program’s continued funding through the State of California’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund. 

With its first three funding rounds, AHSC has invested more than $701 million statewide to build affordable housing for 6,443 families, reduce 1.6 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions, and fund critical transportation infrastructure, as detailed in our AHSC outcomes report.

The campaign’s new website has AHSC Stories from residents now living in AHSC developments as well as Advocacy Tools supporters can download and use. 

I encourage all AHSC supporters to join us by endorsing this campaign to maintain our state’s commitment to invest in this vital program for building more affordable homes and sustainable communities in California.
