SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a major proposal to fight the housing cost crisis.

It sets higher short-term goals for housing that cities and counties must meet and provides $750 million in support and incentives to do so.

The governor says the affordability crisis is undermining the California dream.

In a statement, Newsom said:

“Families should be able to live near where they work. They shouldn’t live in constant fear of eviction or spend their whole paycheck to keep a roof overhead.”

The proposal is part of Gov. Newsom’s $1.75 billion package for 2019 that includes tax credits and loans to spur low, mixed and middle-income housing production.

  1. Winter Smith says:

    “I hope California will really make some progress with this guy. He is right about how families should live. That should apply to individuals as well. No doubt a lack of affordable housing is undermining the California dream…and pretty much all dreams, really. My friends in less progressive states have faced eviction threats over small things and it took quite a toll on them physically and mentally.

    If you’re ever in danger of being evicted, there are resources out there! For a start, check out”””
