We Need More Homes!
California awards 1 billion tax credits each year to build affordable housing.
Yet every year we produce less and less housing with these resources.
Partly to blame is our antiquated scoring system, which drives costs up.
We should replace this system with one that measures return on investment.
Doing so will increase production by 5-10% without using additional resources.
I realize this change will take months to design and will heighten competition.
But housing 400 more California households each and every year is worth it.
