Since 2012 and the changes to redevelopment agencies in the State, affordable housing has been more difficult to finance and construct. Developers and local
agencies have had to be more creative about assembling funding sources, leveraging new financial tools, and being more collaborative. Public-private
partnerships (PPP) within the Sacramento region have successfully tackled the issues of affordable housing and can help guide future projects. The West
Gateway Place project was the first project in the State with an Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) grant to break ground. The first
vertical project in the new Downtown Railyards will be an affordable housing project that leverages the previous investments in infrastructure and will benefit
from future public and private funding for parks, schools, and other urban amenities benefiting these future residents.
