Grants and in-kind support to California nonprofit organizations and government agencies in eligible locations to develop community-focused strategies that increase the supply of housing. Funding is intended to support innovative models, diverse approaches, and new partnerships that will promote a vision for growing the housing supply in a sustainable and equitable way. Programs can be at a neighborhood, community, county, or regional scale. Eligible projects benefit the six-county SCAG region of Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties. Forty percent of the households should earn less than 80% of the Area Median Income.
Strategies such as promoting racial equity, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and design or financing innovation in the planning and development of housing are encouraged. Eligible activities include programs and plans designed to promote pro-housing policies, streamline the housing approval process, develop community support for new housing, and remove barriers to new housing development. All activities must show a nexus supporting increased housing production.
Selected grantees will also benefit from a small amount of training and technical assistance from a team of housing, planning, and legal experts that will advise them on the development of their plans, provide unique data analysis, advice on legal contracts, and other documents (like by-laws, etc.), or other organizational support as needed.
Activities should align with the State's REAP program. Specific activities include:
