One Step Closer to More Affordable Housing

Orange County, like the rest of California, is in the midst of a housing crisis. We need more affordable housing and permanent supportive housing to support our workforce and get our homeless on a path to self-sufficiency. Today, under the leadership of Supervisor Andrew Do, the Orange County Board of Supervisors took a significant step in addressing our housing needs. The Board approved the bylaws for the Orange County Housing Trust, which is a Joint Powers Authority with county and city officials to fund housing projects on a countywide level. Since over 90% of land use rights are controlled by the cities, it is vital for cities to be at the table to addressing our housing crisis. We are looking forward to working together to tackle our County’s toughest issues.
