Information on AB 35
AB 35 is a critically needed measure that will increase California’s investment in low-income housing by $300 million and leverage an additional $600 million in federal housing resources that would otherwise go unclaimed. This measure builds on the proven success of the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC), which for decades has effectively helped finance affordable homes.
