Thursday, June 18 | 1:00-1:45pm PT
Following the passing of the state budget on June 15th, this update will provide funders with a chance to explore what the final budget looks like for homelessness and housing funding and understand what kind of investment the state is willing to make around efforts to end homelessness and housing instability.
During this California Homelessness & Housing Policy Funders Network update, we will also be briefed on homelessness and housing specific legislation (such as AB 1845, AB 3269, AB 3300, and others) and identify possible opportunities and gaps philanthropy should be thinking about, as well as possible racial equity implications of these policies. After the update from our partners at Housing California and CSH, participants will have time to ask the policy experts burning questions about the budget or specific legislation and engage in thought partnership around philanthropy's opportunities for action.
This is the first in a series of targeted, interactive updates to keep funders in the network knowledgeable of how state legislation is moving. These calls are designed to be smaller, shorter briefings by partners and advocates that provide opportunity for funders to be informed and also think through how they can engage in policy.
