Affordable Housing Summit 2014

The third annual San Joaquin Valley Affordable Housing Summit is Thursday, Nov,13, 2014. Presented by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, California Partnership for the San Joaquin Valley, Fresno State Office of Community & Economic Development, and California Coalition for Rural Housing.

Year In Review 2013

San Joaquin Valley Housing Collaborative (Collaborative) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization formed as a regional entity to specifically address housing issues in the eight-county region of the San Joaquin Valley (Valley). The Collaborative not only serves as a much-needed forum to discuss regional challenges and strategies to address the Valley’s long- and short-term housing goals, it also serves as an invaluable tool for the region to organize as one voice when communicating with state and federal policymakers and regulatory agencies.

The Valley has continually suffered from several severe challenges, most recently serving as the epicenter of the nation’s foreclosure crisis. This unprecedented crisis, combined with the loss of redevelopment agencies and an increasing demand for affordable housing and dwindling state and federal resources, has created a new reality for the Valley highlighting the need for a regional forum to share information, discuss new strategies, and collaborate on innovative approaches and solutions to our shared challenges.

The Collaborative has proven to be a valuable tool for the region to respond to this crisis, and to communicate as a region to the state and federal government in the formation of housing policies and funding strategies. See Full Year-In-Review
