Housing

Congresswoman Pelosi joins with Mayor Edwin Lee, Community Housing Partnership and Larkin Street Youth Services for the grand opening of Edward II in the Marina District, a historic inn rehabilitated into supportive housing for youth at risk of homelessness.

Affordable housing is a critical tool in our shared efforts to build a stronger, more vibrant, more inclusive future for San Francisco.  We must ensure that people from all walks of life can continue to live in our beautiful City, share in its vibrancy, and enjoy its diversity and energy. That is why ensuring access to safe, affordable housing and reducing homelessness are among my top priorities in Congress.

I have long fought to address the critical issue of housing affordability: championing Low Income Housing Tax Credits and tax credits for first-time homebuyers, advocating for housing resources for individuals living with HIV/AIDS, strengthening innovative initiatives to reduce homelessness, and supporting programs such as Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) that will renovate distressed public housing units for low-income San Franciscans, and HOPE SF--bringing millions in federal dollars to renovate and revitalize obsolete public housing units such as Hunters View, Alice Griffith, and Sunnydale.

Now more than ever, we must continue to find ways to strengthen and protect access to sustainable, livable, and affordable housing communities in our City and across the country.  I look forward to continuing to work with affordable housing community leaders in San Francisco and advocates nationwide to examine ways to strengthen affordable housing.
