This November voters like YOU can be part of the solution to California’s housing crisis

Housing on the Ballot

On November 6, California voters will have the opportunity to approve three critical housing ballot measures: the Veterans and Affordable Housing Act, No Place Like Home, and the Affordable Housing Act. Together these ballot measures will increase funding for housing opportunities and increase cities’ and counties’ options to protect local tenants from displacement.

Proposition 1: The Veterans and Affordable Housing Act will generate $2 billion in new funds to create and preserve affordable homes, including supportive housing, for veterans, working families, people with disabilities, residents experiencing homelessness and others struggling to find a safe place to call home.

Proposition 2: No Place Like Home will help people who are homeless and dealing with serious mental illness by creating stable housing for them and keeping mental health support services in close reach. Download flyer for more information.

Proposition 10: The Affordable Housing Act will give local communities the power to adopt local rent control measures by repealing the state’s Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act. Proposition 10 is a critical tool that will give our local cities the ability to provide more housing stability, protect families, and make our communities more affordable.

Ensuring Opportunity believes that each of these solutions is a critical part of a comprehensive strategy to address the housing and homelessness crisis that is fracturing so many families and communities in Contra Costa. We urge you to vote Yes on Propositions 1, 2, and 10 in November.
