The Project

My fellowship project addresses the need for affordable housing in the greater Los Angeles area using California Housing Element law. This includes commenting on local housing element drafts, monitoring jurisdiction compliance and advocating to promote policies to more effectively preserve and produce affordable housing. The current lack of affordable housing, coupled with condo conversions and the scarcity of available land to develop new housing, puts low-income residents of Los Angeles at risk of homelessness.
