Gentrification and Displacement Risk Assessment in San Joaquin County

In recent years, San Joaquin County has been characterized by the jobs-housing imbalance affecting much of the state.

This has resulted in rapid increases in the cost of housing. San Joaquin County is one of many localities that has absorbed households leaving the higher-cost Bay Area region.

Yolo FPRP specifically targets those participating in CalWORKs HSP, which works to foster housing stability for families experiencing homelessness.

Over the last decade and a half, the state has developed a variety of policies and programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, with a particular focus on transportation.
