10 Reasons to Support the Affordable Housing Bonus Program

100% Affordable Housing Benefits

  1. Produces more homes for families of 4 earning less than $61k annually
  2. Builds more affordable housing by adding three extra floors instead of two
  3. Cuts ‘red-tape’ and streamlines the permitting process

Mixed-Income Housing Benefits

  1. Establishes the City’s first middle-income housing program for individuals earning up to $85k annually
  2. Builds 30% permanently affordable housing that does not cost taxpayers anything
  3. Does not demolish existing housing or rent-controlled apartments
  4. Prioritizes building housing on parking lots and gas stations
  5. Encourages density 1/4 mile from transit and within commercial districts
  6. Follows design guidelines to preserve neighborhood character
  7. Requires 40% 2-bedroom homes, so more families can stay in San Francisco
