EBHO Campaigns and Committees

 Annual Affordable Housing Week

The highlight of our ongoing education campaigns, Affordable Housing Week each May demonstrates the ongoing housing crisis but also celebrates solutions through tours, grand openings and ground breakings, discussions and panels, and more.  EBHO and our members sponsor events through the East Bay that reach thousands of residents, housing and service providers, advocates, local government staff and elected officials.

Statewide Organizing

Decisions at the state level have a profound impact on localities in the East Bay.  EBHO has been deeply involved in efforts to preserve affordable housing funds lost through the elimination of redevelopment in early 2012, and to replace the resources no longer available to the affordable housing community. We have advocated for a dedicated statewide source of affordable housing funds. Most recently, we have partnered to launch the Residents United Network (RUN) to create a statewide advocacy movement for affordable homes. Click here for more on out statewide organizing efforts.

Concord Committee

Join us in EBHO’s exciting coalition campaign for affordable housing and sustainable development at the Concord Naval Weapons Station (CNWS) and citywide.  EBHO convenes the Community Coalition for a Sustainable Concord which in 2012, had a significant victory when the City Council approved a visionary base reuse plan including 25% affordable housing.

Foreclosures & Affordable Housing Committee

As the foreclosure crisis continues, EBHO is seeking to lessen the divide between developers of affordable rental housing and those who focus on foreclosure intervention and bank accountability. Our members are working to reframe these issues as all part of the same broken housing market.
