About Proposition A
Prop A, the $310 million housing bond, builds critically needed homes for low and middle income San Franciscans without raising taxes.
Prop A has the unanimous support of Mayor Ed Lee, the Board of Supervisors, affordable housing advocates and local small businesses, because the funding will go directly toward building more housing for low-income and middle-class families.
