Grants to California eligible entities to develop affordable housing options for military veterans. Funding is intended for the renovation of existing buildings, or the purchase and development of affordable multifamily housing for veterans and their families. This grant program is for the benefit of veterans in the state of California.
VHHP assistance shall be provided as post-construction, permanent loans. VHHP loans shall be secured by the project’s real property and improvements, and subject only to liens, encumbrances and other matters of record approved by the Department, consistent with 25 CCR Section 8315. Projects with ground leases shall be subject to 25 CCR Section 8316.
VHHP finances the development of affordable rental and transitional housing for veterans with an emphasis on housing for homeless and extremely low-income veterans. At least 50% of the funds awarded shall serve veteran households with extremely low incomes. Of those units targeted to extremely low-income veteran housing, 60% shall be supportive housing units.
Funds must be used to serve veterans and their families. “Veteran” means any person who served in the active military, naval, or air service of the United States or as a member of the National Guard who was called to and released from active duty or active services for a period of not fewer than 90 consecutive days or was discharged from service due to a service-related disability. This includes veterans with other-than-honorable discharges.
Prioritized projects will combine housing and supportive services, including, but not limited to job training, mental health and drug treatment, case management, care coordination, and physical rehabilitation (Military and Veterans Code § 987.005(a)(2)).
