Meet Kate Hartley, Bay Area Housing Finance Authority Director

Friday, August 25th from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

In 2019 the California legislature established the Bay Area Housing Finance Authority (BAHFA) via AB 1487. BAHFA has regional revenue generating authority that enables it to work collaboratively with all Bay Area jurisdictions. Its mandate is to create regional solutions that meet the Bay Area's affordable housing needs by producing and preserving more affordable housing and protecting our most vulnerable residents.

Hear from Kate Hartley, BAHFA Director, on progress made to date and next steps for a potential regional housing bond measure. The program includes the BAHFA Business Plan and Equity Framework. Don't miss this opportunity to ask questions and make comments. The LWV Bay Area board wants your input.
