Bid Title: Gentrification & Displacement Assessment
Category: Request for Proposals
Status: Closed

Description:
San Joaquin County is home to some of the most vulnerable communities in California, with a majority of census tracts identified in San Joaquin County among the top 25th percentile of CalEnviroScreen 3.0. In addition to the demographic population and housing trends, a significant body of literature examines the impact of public transit investment on property values, which in turn impact housing affordability. With greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector continuing to rise, state priorities are focused on increasing investment in transportation alternatives and targeting growth in existing communities to reduce driving. However, these strategies could have unintended consequences such as accelerating gentrification and displacement. Building upon an emerging regional discourse on gentrification and displacement in San Joaquin County, SJCOG will conduct an assessment to understand the risk of gentrification and displacement in the region. While the gentrification and displacement assessment may begin with a transportation lens, there may also be other perspectives to incorporate from economic development, workforce education and training, as well as public health.
