At the eastern most edge of the San Francisco Bay Area sits Livermore, a city of 83,000 residents that holds the unique distinction of having two national laboratories. Although Livermore has more people with PhDs than any other U.S. city, that doesn’t mean everyone who lives there can afford the median home prices or the market’s rental rates. The city has made affordable housing such a large priority that its efforts have been recognized by both state and national housing groups. There are a wide range of programs designed to help people buy affordable homes and rent affordable apartments. These efforts are showcased in Livermore’s Strong Cities | Strong State profile.
