SB 169 and the associated funding set aside in the 2021-22 State Budget is intended to provide affordable, low-cost housing options for students enrolled in public postsecondary education in California. SB 169 establishes a program of one-time grants for the construction of student housing. It also encourages colleges to acquire and renovate commercial properties for student housing.
