Partnership for the Bay’s Future - San Francisco Foundation - Policy Fund
In-kind support to California government agencies in eligible counties to promote equitable and affordable housing. Eligible applicants are at risk of, or currently experiencing, the exclusion or displacement of low-income individuals and communities of color and are located in the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara.
The Policy Fund is launching the Breakthrough Grants for Housing Production and Preservation (“Breakthrough Grants”), a program to catalyze policy innovation in building and preserving affordable housing in local communities. In a time of tough COVID-related budget and staffing constraints, the Breakthrough Grants provide increased capacity and tailored technical assistance that will support local breakthroughs in equitable housing solutions.
The Breakthrough Grants facilitate innovations in equitable housing solutions by:
The Policy Fund will select a cohort of jurisdictions that propose the most high-impact, yet realistically achievable plans to be a part of the Breakthrough Grants. The cohort will be made up of “core teams” working collaboratively to advance housing production and preservation policy across the Bay Area. A core team will consist of local government staff who work closely with their Breakthrough Grant fellow and a local community partner organization. This “inside-outside” partnership ensures community input and support for local policy and provides essential capacity to move the work forward.
Within the two-year grant period, each of the Breakthrough Grant jurisdictions will receive two years of capacity, community engagement, and tailored technical assistance support from the Policy Fund. After the program, participants will become part of the Policy Fund alumni program, and continue to have access to the Partnership network and other supports. Chosen jurisdictions will be expected to pass and/or implement a package of affordable housing production and preservation policies in collaboration with their community partners.
