|The San Francisco Housing Action Coalition|
The San Francisco Housing Action Coalition (SFHAC) was founded in 1999 at the height of the first dot.com boom. The originating principle was, “Wouldn’t it be great for the City if there was an organization that would advocate for residential projects or policies that met certain agreed-upon guidelines of good urban design and land use principles?”
Since then, the SFHAC has become a reliable voice supporting smart growth, transit-oriented and, especially, more solutions for housing affordability, in a city known for its rough-and-tumble political climate. Through our committees, the SFHAC endorses projects that meet these goals as well as helps to develop and implement policies that will allow or the right kind of housing to be built in the future. We have that found that by balancing competing factions and searching for middle ground, we can make significant impacts on land use decisions.
