Investments in housing and transit are central to California's approach to climate change mitigation. However, with increased public investment comes concern over potential displacement of low-income residents. To ensure that investments benefit communities while preventing these unintended consequences, this research reviewed seventeen anti-displacement policies, including housing production, preservation, and neighborhood stabilization strategies, identifying their potential to prevent displacement, and the housing markets, implementation scale, and timeframe in which they are effective.
