November 2024 Electoral Endorsements

Support

Proposition 5 (California)

ACA 1 (passed legislatively in 2023) placed a proposition on the November 2024 ballot that would lower the voter approval threshold to 55% for affordable housing and infrastructure revenue measures, strengthening local democratic governance and furthering equitable housing policy. ACA 10 (passed legislatively in 2024) updates the proposition by removing special taxes from the scope. The updated proposition will go before voters for approval on the November ballot as Proposition 5.

Measure 4 (Bay Area)

Measure 4 would authorize the Bay Area Housing Finance Authority (BAHFA) to issue $20 billion in general bond obligations to fund the construction, development, acquisition, rehabilitation and preservation of affordable housing for extremely-low, low- and moderate-income households in the Bay Area. The “Bay Area” includes the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma, and the City and County of San Francisco. This measure takes a collaborative regional approach in partnership with local governments as it provides funding for every Bay Area county and for regionwide programs to address housing affordability. If approved, Measure 4 will finance the development and preservation of between 70,000 to 90,000 affordable homes in the nine county Bay Area. We urge voters to support Measure 4 to realize a Bay Area where everyone has a home in a safe and vibrant community.
