In addition to devastating weather-related natural events, Santa Cruz County continues to experience a critical shortage of affordable housing for frontline workers, teachers, nurses, childcare workers, and countless others who struggle to make ends meet with the high cost of living in our county.

Affordable Housing NOW!
We are a task force of local residents working for affordable housing in Santa Cruz County, CA. The principles of our team are listed below.  

Our Working Principles

  1. Affordable housing solutions should be directed toward housing for existing local moderate and low income residents.
  2. Affordable housing programs should address existing housing, on the recognition that no amount of new development can meet the need for affordable housing here.
  3. Affordable housing programs must address the prolonged and severe crisis in the local rental housing market, which includes over half of our households.
  4. New development and affordability modifications to existing housing should utilize best practices for energy and water efficiency, open space, landscaping and drainage, in order to minimize environmental impacts, maintain neighborhood quality, and reduce operating costs for residents.
