HSBD 2020 is a local event in its third year that aims to provide Santa Barbara County residents with information on affordable housing and related topics. You can get housing resources like the Affordable Housing Resource Guide year round at housingsantabarbara.org  The guide has a listing of all housing related entities that serve residents in the County of Santa Barbara. It is continuously updated and provides live links to each organization.

According to a recent survey tenants and landlords are interested in becoming better educated on housing priorities and issues unique to our region. The hot-button topics includes tenant rights and responsibilities, resources for rent and mortgage relief during the COVID-19 economic downturn, rental mediation and workforce housing. To address these and other important housing matters, 2nd Story Associates will host the 3rd annual Housing Santa Barbara Day, which has been expanded to a 5-day virtual event with workshops on Saturday, October 24th, Monday the 26th, Tuesday the 27th, Wednesday the 28th and Thursday the 29th.
