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 an opportunity to come together to build support for affordable housing and racial justice and educate our communities on how affordable housing benefits us all.

In honor of EBHO’s 40th Anniversary, this year’s theme is “Powerful Legacy, Powerful Future.” We’ll share lessons learned from leaders who came before us to reinvigorate our future work.

Events Calendar

This year we are excited to partner with 31 organizations to host 30 events through the month of May!

These events spread across the East Bay, including resident panel discussions, groundbreakings and grand openings, and even a tour of local artwork at new affordable housing communities. Educational webinars cover topics such as affordable housing finance, homeownership for middle-income families of color, and the role of housing in healthcare. 

Thanks to our generous fiscal partners, most Affordable Housing Month events are free and open to the public. Be sure to browse our digital event calendar to learn more about each event and RSVP.

Affordable Housing Month Kickoff Celebration

We’re so excited to announce our Affordable Housing Month Kickoff Celebration on Wednesday, May 1st from 5:30 – 7:30 PM!

Our Kickoff Celebration is our biggest event of the year! This year we’ll come together over food and drinks at BLOC15 in Oakland to celebrate several housing heroes who have made significant contributions to the affordable housing movement in the East Bay. Stay tuned for an announcement of this year’s honorees.

We are still welcoming sponsors for our Kickoff Celebration, though the deadline to appear in all of our materials was Friday, April 19th.
