Your input is imperative.
WHEN: Wednesday July 20th, 2016, 8:30 am – 12:00 pm
WHAT: Call-To-Action: Exploring Solutions for Affordable Housing in Alameda County, an AC CAN Quarterly Stakeholder Convening
WHERE: The California Endowment, Oakland Conference Center, Laurel Room, 1111 Broadway, 7th Floor, Oakland, CA 94607
There are deep rooted concerns in our community regarding rising housing costs and the impending threat of displacement facing far too many families in Alameda County. Income and asset development work is changing as rent eats up clients’ budgets and families are forced to leave their neighborhoods and move out of our areas of service. But what can we do to support our clients and our own communities?
Aided by researchers, residents, and community-based organizations, local and state governments are proposing a number of measures this year to limit the extreme housing insecurity experienced by families in the region. How might new laws and bonds aid in the fight for affordable housing and assist the families you serve? What resources are available to help your clients right now?
Our discussion will address the following major topics:
- Proven Solutions
- Government Assistance Programs
- Local Data
- Innovative Housing Options
- Policy Change
- State & Local Level Legislation
We will bring together stakeholders from County/City agencies, CBOs, legal services organizations, and base building organizations to hone in on a solution-based conversation.
Mark your calendars and share this invite with a colleague. Your input is imperative.
