The Affordable Homes for Educators & Families NOW! Initiative

The Affordable Homes for Educators & Families NOW! initiative will make it easier and faster to build affordable housing in every neighborhood across San Francisco by:
  • Rezoning thousands of large private and public lots citywide to allow for expedited and streamlined 100% Affordable and Educator Housing Projects — without demolishing existing housing or touching public parks;
  • Waiving density restrictions and allowing extra building height for affordable housing projects to make them more financially feasible;
  • Creating an Educator Housing pilot program with designated funds in the November housing bond – crafted in partnership with the teachers and affordable housing nonprofits;
  • Eliminating the Conditional Use Authorization process for 100% Affordable Housing and Educator Housing Projects and requiring that projects be approved within a strict timeline.

This upcoming election presents an incredible opportunity to tackle the two biggest barriers to addressing our affordable housing crisis: access to land and funding.

Please make a contribution to support this initiative to make it easier and faster to build affordable housing throughout San Francisco, so that we can start to put a real dent in our affordable housing crisis.
