As we reflect on the significance of homeownership as the foundation of stability and prosperity, we are faced with a concerning development in Governor Newsom’s budget proposal for FY25. This proposal includes a claw-back of $152.5M in FY24 funding previously allocated for the CalHome program, the only state program providing funding for affordable homeownership production and a vital resource for many California Habitat for Humanity affiliates. With the housing crisis gripping our state, it’s more crucial than ever to advocate for policies that support affordable homeownership. 

Join us in keeping the homeownership dream alive for hardworking Californians by learning more about CalHome and urging Governor Gavin Newsom not to zero out the only state funding for the construction of affordable homes to own. Together, let’s make our voices heard and ensure that every Californian has access to safe and affordable housing.
