Calling the Bay Area home 


Get Healthy SMC joined the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG)’s special forum to better understand the affordable housing and displacement challenges facing the Bay Area and explore regional solutions. A few days ago, over 400 people gathered to discuss updating Plan Bay Area and the role regional agencies can play in addressing rising housing costs and displacement of long-time residents. The Association of Bay Area Health Officers (ABAHO) and Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiative (BARHII) submitted a letter to MTC and ABAG leadership sharing the important implications of healthy, stable housing and provided our 5 P’s framework for addressing housing for all: Production, Preservation, Protection, Placement and Participation.
