Join SV@Home for a conversation about the purpose and need for anti-displacement policies in local housing elements to affirmatively further fair housing.
For much of the Housing Element Update process, the focus has been on the scale of the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) and the planning process of identifying potential housing opportunity sites to meet these requirements. What we have observed through this process is that there is relatively less understanding and attention to the broader Housing Element requirements under Affirmatively Further Fair Housing (AFFH).
We will have an interactive conversation about what policies local cities have placed in their housing element, what is missing, and how you can get involved to push for more in the housing element and ensure that your city follows through on adopting its proposed policies to affirmatively further fair housing.
