Tell the Prop I Oversight Board: Public Housing for All Now!

SF Community Housing Act | Housing for the 99% | SF's Green New Deal for Public Housing

The federal government’s classist and racist defunding of HUD public housing has directly led to more homelessness and worsened our housing crisis.

The antidote to this crisis is Public Housing for All! To make this happen, SF voters approved Prop K in Nov 2020 with 73.5% of the vote, which gave the City the authority it needed to produce Public Housing for All. Voters also passed Prop I to raise almost $200 million a year for social housing.

In February 2022, we released a proposal on how SF can use Prop I funds to make this program a reality. We recommend that the Prop I Oversight Board:

  1. Study the financial sustainability of municipal housing
  2. Study setting up a dedicated enterprise agency for municipal housing
  3. Begin to staff up the agency and develop a pilot project with an initial budget appropriation.

We need your help to make sure these recommendations are incorporated into the budget process! You can use this letter-writing campaign to email the Prop I (Housing Stability Fund) Oversight Board, as well as the Board of Supervisors and Mayor.

You can also leave a public comment at the virtual Oversight Board meeting on Wednesday 03/16! Public comment should start around 5:30-6:00 PM. Sign up on this Google Form and we will reach out with a reminder.
