New brief shows climate and community benefits from California program

A new policy brief from Enterprise Community Partners, the California Housing Partnership Corporation and Transform examines climate and community benefits from developments funded by California’s Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) program. This program is funded by the state’s cap-and-trade program. Through two rounds of investment, AHSC has invested $443 million in 58 developments that will create greenhouse gas reductions by reducing CO2 output by 1.2 million metric tons and removing 8,000 cars from the road annually while also creating 4,500 affordable homes and transit infrastructure. The program is funded until 2020.
