In the San Francisco Bay Area, long before the COVID19 global pandemic swept through our region, safe, stable, and affordable housing was far from accessible to all. In the midst of the pandemic, low-income communities of color are far more likely to experience homelessness and housing instability.

More crucially than ever, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) are poised to make big, bold meaningful changes for the Bay Area to lead us out of this crisis, plan for future emergencies and natural disasters, and chart a recovery path forward to ensure that our region remains resilient and recommitted to racial justice and economic equity.

The Road Ahead: A 21st Century Housing Strategy for the San Francisco Bay Area outlines why and how MTC and ABAG can develop, approve, and implement a comprehensive housing strategy for the Bay Area that will guide both agencies’ existing housing portfolio, the Bay Area Housing Finance Authority (BAHFA), Plan Bay Area 2050, and their various housing programs, policies, and decision-making processes.
