Housing market recovery in the 12th district: implications for low- and moderate-income communities

School quality and affordable housing in the Bay Area

Everyone knows the old real estate adage that the three most important factors in determining the value of a given property are location, location, and location.

This bundle can include proximity to parks, small-scale retail offerings, high quality schools, and a variety of transportation options, as well as low crime rates and clean air. These amenities are arranged in a variety of configurations across space, and most households determine which aspects are ...

Child Care, COVID-19, and our Economic Future

Child care is important for cultivating the future workforce, and it also ensures that working parents of today can participate in the economy, helping to achieve the Federal Reserve’s mandate for full employment.
