Action Item for This Week: From 2000 to 2015, 23 states under-produced housing by 7.3 million units, with California representing nearly half that total.
In response, a bipartisan group of federal lawmakers introduced two pieces of legislation to address the national housing crisis.
The YIMBY Act requires Community Development Block Grant recipients to go on the record explaining how they are implementing pro-affordability and anti-discriminatory housing policies.
The Build More Housing Near Transit Act requires transit authorities pursuing federal transit funding to evaluate the feasibility of new housing near stations and secure a policy commitment from local governments to support both affordable and market-rate housing.

With Guest Speaker Meghan Sahli-Wells, RHNA Champion!
AHLA has a lot to celebrate this year! Help us end our first year as a funded organization by celebrating our accomplishments and giving thanks to our hard-working volunteers. Thanks to AHLA members and volunteers, we were able to support individual housing projects, advocate for better community plans, support pro-housing and tenant protection on the state level, and successfully advocate for over 1.3 million homes in the SCAG region, concentrated in coastal, job-rich cities near transit! Our Guest Speaker, Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells told SCAG that they were the "titanic," heading to disaster on housing. Thanks to her, our amazing volunteers, and other pro-housing advocates and elected officials, SCAG voted for a better plan.
Let's get together over beer and take the moment to recognize our successes, and the bigger wins down the road as we enter 2020. Drinks and food will be provided!
