Housing for All
According to the California Department of Housing and Community Development, California needs to produce 180,000 new homes annually, but production averaged less than 80,000 new homes annually over the last 10 years, and ongoing production continues to fall far below the projected need. See rates of housing production in California from 2005-2019.
Based on feedback from our builders around the state, CBIA compiled a series of policy recommendations aimed at relieving the state’s ever-growing housing crisis. We urge the state Legislature to take action on these issues to reduce barriers to home construction and ensure that California can produce homes needed to achieve housing for all. LEARN MORE>>
