What's going on with housing in California?

Read our explainer: Newsom campaigned on building 3.5 million homes. He hasn’t gotten even close

California faces a housing crisis with the median price for a single-family home at $830,000. That is double the national median. Despite billions of dollars in spending, homelessness has increased by at least 22,500 since 2019, to 173,800. California’s challenge is to build far more housing units than it has in recent years.

There are about 103,000 inmates in California state prisons, as initiatives and state policies reduce the population.
