Increasing Affordable Housing
We support AB 2345 which will boost affordable housing production by expanding the state’s density bonus program. The density bonus encourages affordable housing production by allowing developers to add more units and receive exemptions from building restrictions when they add more affordable units to their projects.
This bill will grant developers more units if they add more affordable housing than is currently called for in the density bonus. It will also increase the exemptions a developer can receive if they add more affordable units.
