We did it! Thanks to every affordable housing advocate who raised their voice over the last few months, $350 million has been allocated to CalHome in the state budget over the next two years! Governor Newsom and the California legislature heard our concerns and heeded our urgent request. Seizing on a historic opportunity, they have dedicated significant funding to fund CalHome, the foundation for affordable home ownership production in California. An investment of $250 million this year, and $100 million next year ensures non-profit developers can build affordable homes for working families to OWN, delivering increased stability, equity, and economic security.

The funding of CalHome is a massive victory for affordable homeownership in California, and you can be proud of your part in making it happen! In total, 9,984 letters were sent to Governor Newsom and our state Legislators! Thank you for your efforts and for staying so actively engaged to make this campaign result a HUGE SUCCESS for Habitat and homeownership in our state.

Please join us in sending a quick thank you message to our lawmakers today.
