Two victories!

On Tuesday, December 15th, the board of supervisors unanimously passed two pieces of legislation stabilizing some of the city’s most vulnerable residents. One piece of legislation requires the city to keep moving people into Shelter in Place hotels. The city seeks to wind down the program despite rising cases and ICU hospitalizations in the city and statewide. See coverage in the Chronicle here.

The second piece of legislation ensures that rents in permanent supportive housing do not exceed 30% of a tenant’s income, and standard measure of affordability.

The community continues to remain organized to ensure that these policies are signed into law and implemented quickly. A petition encouraging Mayor Breed to sign the #30RightNow legislation promptly is here. Additionally, a wide range of groups remain vigilant to ensure that hotel residents are treated fairly, actually provided with adequate housing and there is equity in housing options for all homeless San Franciscans.
