The advocacy organization Housing California is hosting their annual conference in Sacramento next week from April 27 to 29. Housing California's Annual Conference brings together advocates, builders, lenders, consumers, lawmakers, and other leaders in the affordable home and homelessness community to focus on solutions for land use, budget and funding and homelessness.
The conference has become the nation’s largest statewide conference of its kind. It will have more than 75 workshops and pre-conference institutes, more than 50 exhibitors and more than 1,100 attendees.
Jim Draughon and I will be part of a panel in a workshop called “Are You In Compliance? Compliance Monitoring for Multiple-Funded Affordable Housing Projects,” during which we will be partnering with Amelia Soto from the Carson Housing Authority, Gretel Noble from the San Bernardino County Department of Community Development and Housing and Drew Sarni from AMCAL Multi-Housing, Inc. We will provide an overview of affordable housing monitoring, describe case studies in public agency and development monitoring and operating review audits and outline post-RDA dissolution regulatory compliance issues (especially those related to Senate Bill 341).
Believing that communities thrive when people have access to safe, stable, affordable places to live, close to good jobs, good schools, near grocery stores and transportation options, Housing California educates lawmakers and others who have the power to stabilize the housing market; create more housing opportunities and implement proven solutions tot reduce homelessness. The organization helps legislators and their staff members to understand the impacts of proposed housing/homeless legislation and how these bills will impact Californians on fixed incomes and modest budgets.
