California’s Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities Program Impact Report, Rounds 1 to 7

The Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities Program (AHSC) was established in 2014 to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by financing integrated projects that include affordable housing, transportation, urban greening, and community programming. By creating holistic, affordable developments that encourage walking, biking, and public transit use, AHSC projects have changed California's development and land-use patterns to foster more equitable and sustainable communities.

This report captures the program's impact through seven rounds of funding. During that time, AHSC has invested $3.2 billion in 185 catalytic developments across the state. The program has produced 17,878 transit-oriented affordable homes for low-income individuals and families across 185 developments. AHSC has also invested in 294 miles of new and improved bike lanes and 882 new buses, vans, or shuttles for public transit. These investments have resulted in 5.2 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions avoided and 37,817 cars removed from the road each year.
