The Bay Area Council has long advocated for a strong regional approach to addressing our housing crisis, including supporting legislation that created the Bay Area Housing Finance Authority (BAHFA). In this guest item highlighted in the council's Weekly Flash newsletter, Metropolitan Transportation Commission Chair Alfredo Pedroza and Association of Bay Area Governments Chair Jesse Arreguin outline the purpose and objectives for BAHFA.
ABAG stands for the Association of Bay Area Governments. Our mission is to strengthen cooperation and collaboration across local governments to build healthier, stronger communities.
ABAG is part regional planning agency and part local government service provider. We accomplish our goals by providing planning services and cost-effective ABAG member services to local governments struggling with rising costs and diminishing incomes.
