California’s commitment to racial justice and economic inclusion are meaningless without dramatic changes that make homeownership a possibility for marginalized racial and economic communities. The primary mechanism for achieving this will be building more homes that are affordable by design. Currently, new homes built in California cost more than double the national average. Complex regulations create uncertainty and delays that dramatically increase the price of new housing projects. Further cities and other municipalities have become more reliant on local impact fees, pushing prices up further. This webinar provides an overview of the dramatic racial wealth gap, the consequences of that gap for home ownership and current policies that might be reformed to build more homes that are affordable by design.
