According to Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies, more than a quarter of residents in Monterey County are severely rent-burdened, spending more than 50% of their household income on rent. To combat the affordable housing crisis, by 2023, Monterey County has to add more than 7300 units to its housing stock.

The Low Cost Housing Forum will provide information on why low cost housing is an important issue for all Monterey County residents; identify the issues; and share specific actions that we can do to support the availability of quality low cost housing in our communities. A panel comprised of speakers representing different aspects of the housing crisis will share information, respond to questions, and engage in a dialogue on possible solutions.

Program hosted by The Social Justice Committee, Carmel – Monterey – Pacific Grove United Methodist Churches.
