Santa Clara County voters pass a $950 million affordable housing bond to house 4,800 low- and extremely low-income households. In 2016, Santa Clara County passed Measure A, an affordable housing bond projected to fund 120 new affordable housing developments over ten years. The units will be available on a rolling basis beginning mid-year 2019 through 2022. Of the 1,416 low- and extremely-low units already approved, nearly 6 in 10 are permanent supportive housing for homeless persons with disabling conditions, one third are affordable to very low- and extremely low-income households, and nearly one in 10 are rapid rehousing units for homeless working households.
