Cultivate innovative solutions to resolve the growing housing crisis in America and provide safe, affordable rental housing for essential workers and their families.
We provide grants to eligible essential workers and their families to bridge the gap between the high cost of housing and household income.
We are creating affordable, rent-restricted housing communities geared toward middle-income households.
In Marin County, for example, the average starting teacher salary is $50,000 per year or $4,167 per month...
…and the average rent is $2,800 per month, or $33,600 per year, resulting in a 67% housing burden
The Essential Housing Fund helped fill the gap for a set of Marin County teachers by covering up to $1,285 per month, lowering housing costs by approximately 31%
