A YES vote on Measure V would allocate $450 million to expand access to truly affordable housing for working families, teachers, students and veterans, while transitioning homeless residents from the streets and underpasses into homes. These funds will fill the gap the City faces in meeting its target goal of 10K new affordable homes.
We have the chance this November to help San Jose address its affordable housing crisis. This is historic—Measure V is the first ever housing bond San Jose has placed on the ballot. In fact, it is the first funding measure for housing of any kind that the City’s voters will have the chance to approve.
But your help is needed! It will take a two-thirds vote of the people for the measure to pass. We know that housing is the #1 issue concerning voters, but we will need them to come out to the polls and show their support for solutions.
Take time today to act.
Attend the Yes on V kick-off event on Monday, September 24th from 12-1 at the Olinder Community Center at 848 E. William Street in San Jose. Important information about the campaign will be shared (including volunteer opportunities) so it is a must attend event!
The Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California (NPH) is also organizing a workshop on September 26 to train volunteers to become spokespeople for Propositions 1 & 2 and Measure V.
Current endorsements include: Mayor Sam Liccardo, the League of Women Voters, the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, Habitat for Humanity, the Sierra Club, Destination:Home, the Housing Trust Silicon Valley, the Health Trust, and of course SV@Home!
Share this fact sheet with your friends, neighbors, and colleagues to educate them about Measure V.
