Affordable Housing Month

Each May, East Bay Housing Organizations joins our partners across the Bay Area to host Affordable Housing Month.

Affordable Housing Month is our opportunity to show what is possible when we work together, educate the public, and collaborate to make “affordable homes for all” a reality.

Affordable Housing Month also marks the annual relaunch of our online Study Room, a comprehensive guide to housing policy in the Bay Area and how to organize for a better world.

Affordable Housing Month Kickoff Celebration

Save the date! EBHO’s Affordable Housing Month kickoff celebration will be held on Thursday, May 4th.

EBHO’s annual Affordable Housing Month kickoff celebration is our biggest event of the year. It’s a night of food, drinks, dancing, networking with others interested in creating a better East Bay, and honoring several of our affordable housing heroes.

We are currently soliciting sponsors for our kickoff event. Please contact Senior Director of Membership & Operations Kiki Poe at with any questions.

Host an Event

One of the perks of being an EBHO member is inclusion in our Affordable Housing Month promotions and programming.

In the past we have co-sponsored a variety of events for Affordable Housing Month including informational webinars, panel discussions, film screenings, affordable housing tours, and more. 

We invite you to create with us! If you would like to host an Affordable Housing Month event in the month of May to be featured on our calendar, website, and social media, please submit your proposal now.

Event submissions are due by April 7, 2023.

Advertise in the Study Room

Three students study in a library.

The Study Room is an online learning portal to take a deep dive into learning about how our current conditions of housing inequity came to be and what we can do to build the world we need. Created by EBHO and rooted in East Bay examples, The Study Room shares information about the people, places, history, and terminology of affordable housing advocacy.

One of EBHO’s key priorities is to provide resources for affordable housing advocacy, as we know knowledge is a key part of building power.

We welcome new sponsors for the Study Room in May, whose advertisements will run from May 1, 2023 – April 30, 2024. Your advertisement will not only support our work, but it will receive over 6,000 annual views. Please email with any questions.

Thank you to Affordable Housing Month Kickoff sponsors!
