Prop 123 will impact wide-ranging areas related to affordable housing, development, services on homelessness, and more, while exempting the money from our state’s revenue limit.Policymakers and advocates will be working this session to figure out how to implement this new opportunity while working through some of its potential challenges.We look forward to seeing you there!
