Affordable Housing Database
Assembly Bill 987 (AB 987), which became effective in January 2008, places several new requirements on California redevelopment agencies with regard to affordable housing programs:
AB 987 extends to certain members of the public enforcement of affordability covenants and restrictions
Agencies must maintain and publish on the internet a database of restricted housing units
Starting in January of 2008, a “Notice of Affordable Restrictions on Transfer of Property" must be recorded on new or substantially rehabilitated housing created as part of a low and moderate income housing program
For more information about AB 987, including analysis and history, visit the California State Assembly website.
The databases of affordable ownership and rental units are assisted by the Soledad Redevelopment Agency. These databases will be updated on no less than an annual basis and are currently under contract with Urban Futures, Inc. with a tenative completion date of November 2010.
