Measure A - Affordable Housing Bond (2016)

Supervisor Chavez was the primary architect of the groundbreaking $950-million 2016 Measure A Affordable Housing Bond – approved by voters in November 2016 to end homelessness in Santa Clara County. As of March 31, 2021, a total of 2,744 affordable housing units were committed for development using bond funds. In addition, $25 million has been committed to the first-time homebuyer loan program. Since 2015, supportive housing in Santa Clara County has increased by 2,398 units as a result of the passage of Measure A.
