SAN FRANCISCO PARENTS SUPPORT MORE HOUSING FOR FAMILIES AND TEACHERS

San Francisco, CA — The San Francisco Parent Political Action Committee announced its support this week for Supervisors Katy Tang’s and Ahsha Safai’s proposed legislation, HOME SF. “Creating opportunities for families and teachers to live in San Francisco will increase the quality of life for all and help our city thrive,” said Parent PAC President Michelle Parker, “and HOME SF does more to increase housing opportunities for middle income residents than any policy in recent memory.”

HOME SF incentivizes more middle income housing in parts of the city well served by parks and transit by upzoning commercial and transit corridors, particularly on the west side of the city, and will require 30 percent on-site permanently affordable housing, which will serve families of four with incomes between 55% and 140% AMI (approx. $63,400-$161,4000/yr). Forty percent of these homes must be family friendly with two or more bedrooms included.

After building virtually no middle income housing over the past 30 years, San Francisco is currently at a mere 15 percent of its own middle-income housing goals. HOME SF helps the city increase that number over the next 20 years, enabling teachers, firefighters, non-profit sector workers, and others a way to afford living here.

HOME SF will go before San Francisco’s Land Use Committee on Monday, May 8 before being voted on by the full Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, May 16.
