Equity-Driven Organizations Advising Housing Policies
The Health Policy and Planning Program is excited to be part of Let’s Talk Housing San Mateo County Equity Advisory Group to ensure that the next decade of housing policies reflect the needs and also the assets of historically marginalized communities. The pandemic shed light on the severe housing crisis that many of our residents experience and how their poor housing conditions impacted their health outcomes. Local jurisdictions are currently updating their housing plans that set the foundations for housing policies and programs for the next decade, and these plans will give us another chance to ensure healthier and more equitable housing options. It is important that those most impacted by the lack of affordable housing options and tenants’ protections inform this process. To learn more about how to be involved, visit here.
