Backed with significant funding and new housing laws, California’s state housing officials now have a lot more authority to ease affordability problems.

Gov. Gavin Newsom has appointed three top bureaucrats to make the new policies work: Lourdes Castro Ramírez, secretary of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency; Gustavo Velasquez, director of the state Department of Housing and Community Development; and Tiena Johnson Hall, executive director of the California Housing Finance Agency.

On this episode of “Gimme Shelter: The California Housing Crisis Podcast,” we interview the three housing chiefs. We explore their positions on housing production, rent control and how they plan to make California a more affordable place to live. We also discuss some troubles with the state’s $5-billion COVID-19 rental assistance program and the successful effort to convert motel rooms into homeless housing.
