with John Fowler (CEO) and Michael Hopkins (Policy Analyst) from Peoples’ Self-Help Housing
​Tuesday, August 14, 2018, 8:00 – 10:00 am, Camarillo Public Library, 4101 Las Posas Road, Camarillo, CA 93010
This is the third Housing Issues Forum for 2018 with a focus on understanding the State housing-related measures on the November 2018 ballot.

Proposition 1: The Veterans and Affordable Housing Act

This $4 billion bond measure will provide affordable homes for veterans, working families, people with disabilities and those experiencing homelessness. The Act will create approximately 137,000 jobs, pump $23.4 billion into California’s economy.

Proposition 2: No Place Like Home Act of 2018

This measure authorizes the state to use revenue from Proposition 63 (2004, a 1% tax on income above $1 million for mental health services) on $2 billion in revenue bonds for homelessness prevention housing for persons in need of mental health services. While the State passed legislation to spend Prop. 63 revenue on revenue bonds for homelessness prevention housing, the legislation did not go into effect because of pending litigation. Prop. 2 would resolve the dispute regarding spending Prop. 63 revenue.
