Housing. It's been on the minds of nearly everyone in the Bay and Peninsula Areas - from middle-class working families, teachers, firefighters, police officers and city workers to politicians, activists and journalists for that matter. With all these minds at work and the wealth of the county taken into account, it may strike some odd that little headway has been made.

According to Steve Cervantes of the San Mateo County Housing Department, the county currently receives federal funds for housing to the tune of $30 million. There is also an additional $4 million dollars that comes from state funding.
