Episcopal Community Services urges San Francisco voters to ‘Vote YES on Prop C’

19 10 2012

Our mission at Episcopal Community Services is to assist people in ending homelessness in their lives, but affordable housing is scarce in San Francisco and will become scarcer without Prop C. Just last year, rent increased by 12%, making San Francisco one of the most challenging rent markets in the U.S. Prop C will safeguard funds that were originally destined for affordable housing in the recently dissolved state redevelopment agencies. Over the next 30 years, Prop C will provide for 9,000 units of quality affordable homes for people who are being priced out of San Francisco, such as single people earning less than $44,000 or a family of four earning less than $93,000.
