San Diego Habitat works in coalition with the 40 Habitat affiliates in California to promote changes in policy that allow us to build homes faster and more affordably. We are currently focused on advancing homeownership opportunities, and creating more equitable access to homeownership by Families of Color.

Some of the state bills we are sponsoring this year include:

  • AB 345 (Quirk-Silva)
    Would allow an ADU to be sold or conveyed separately from the primary residence, resulting in more affordable units available for purchase.

  • AB 1095 (Cooley)
    Would establish more parity in various state affordable housing funding programs, which would increase funding to homeownership programs.

  • SB 728 (Hertzberg)
    Updating density bonus law to allow the purchase of density bonus units by nonprofit housing organizations, which would create more parity for homeownership development in state and local incentive programs.

  • AB 602 (Grayson)
    Would streamline the way development impact fees are calculated — from a per unit approach to a square foot approach, which would make the development of housing more affordable.
