2021 AARP Community Challenge Grantee
A bilingual ADU educational campaign will make the process of building an ADU more accessible with several informative pamphlets and workshops.
The shortage of housing â€” and especially affordable housing â€” in California has resulted in both statewide legislation to encourage the creation of accessory dwelling units and the embrace of ADUs by many local governments. AARP grant funds helped the City of Salinas create bilingual materials about ADUs, host one workshop for contractors and builders as well as two consumer-oriented ADU workshops (one in person, with child care provided, and one virtually, with Spanish translation provided). The materials pictured below and the workshop videos are available on the city's website.
