The California Affordable Housing Pipeline: Maintaining Momentum Toward an Affordable Future

California must produce 1 million affordable homes over the next decade. Heeding this call, the affordable housing sector is actively designing, seeking public approvals, and working to secure funding for new developments – building out the pipeline of affordable homes. At the same time, the State Legislature and the Newsom Administration have taken bold action to invest resources and remove barriers to build affordable housing across the state.

Despite this progress, far too many affordable developments are stalled having yet to begin construction due to a lack of public funding. 

Enterprise Community Partners conducted an analysis of the California Affordable Housing Pipeline, which analyzes the developments near-construction but awaiting funding. It illustrates the enormous progress the state has made, but also an impact yet to be fully realized. This brief outlines the latest data on the Pipeline and outlines four key actions that federal and state leaders can take to unlock and scale affordable housing.
