Matt on Housing

Matt’s Results for San Francisco:
  • Built more housing, including affordable housing, in his district than any other.
  • Protected tenants as a pro bono eviction defense attorney, winning cases in court to keep people in their homes.
  • Authored the “Housing for SF Workers” law to create nearly $400 million in funding for 1,000+ new housing units for low and middle-income workers by raising the Jobs Housing Linkage Fee on large commercial office developments.
  • Rezoned the city to allow affordable housing to be built everywhere by co-sponsoring the Affordable Homes for Educators and Families NOW Initiative.
  • Expanded “just cause” eviction protection to buildings built after 1979, protecting tenants in over 35,000 units.
  • Co-authored an eviction moratorium to protect tens of thousands of tenants from displacement during the pandemic.
Matt’s Commitments in the Assembly:
  • End exclusionary zoning policies that stop desperately needed housing from being built.
  • Build 100,000 new housing units in San Francisco over 10 years to make housing more affordable for all.
  • Establish statewide minimum zoning requirements to allow for increased density near transit and affordable housing to be built everywhere in the state.
  • Support massive expansion of social housing to address the shortage of affordable homes for both low and moderate-income households.
  • Fight for $10 billion California Affordable Housing Bond to build housing that all San Franciscans can afford.
  • Extend the eviction moratorium, strengthen tenant protections, overturn Costa Hawkins, reform the Ellis Act, and expand rent control to keep folks in their homes.
  • Empower the State of California to hold other cities and counties accountable for creating more housing, including closing loopholes in the Housing Accountability Act.
