Why Californians Need Prop 1

  • 1 in 3 Californians can’t afford their rent and housing costs.
  • Many people are spending more than 30% of their incomes and some as much as 50% of their incomes on housing.
  • California has 24% of the national veteran population that is homeless – the largest share of any state.
  • Grocery clerks, nurse aides, teaching assistants and many other working professionals need to earn more than double their annual incomes to afford a modest two-bedroom apartment in most areas of the state.
  • 9 of the nation's 10 least affordable major metropolitan areas – populations of 500,000 or more – are in California, dampening businesses' competitive edge and pricing working families out.
