End of legislative session recap: Eden-supported bills signed by the Governor

October 8, 2021

After the Legislature concluded its second legislative session of the COVID-19 pandemic in mid-September, the Governor has signed a range of bills that seek to accelerate the production and preservation of affordable housing.

Through this year’s state budget, the Governor and Legislature also provided unprecedented support for affordable housing—with the budget investing more than $10 billion in affordable production. Last week the Governor launched one of the budget’s biggest new programs: the $1.75 billion California Housing Accelerator, a fund for shovel-ready affordable projects that are awaiting financing in the state’s backlogged tax credit system. The fund is expected to jumpstart production of between 6,300 and 7,200 units of affordable housing—including 1,200 units for people who are homeless.

Eden supported nine bills that advanced to the Governor, who signed all but one. A summary of this legislation is below:
