As Amended on June 24, 2010
Senate Bill 1174, by Senator Lois Wolk, would create the Future Sustainable Communities Pilot Program. Cities and counties with a disadvantaged community inside or near its boundaries would be eligible to apply to the Strategic Growth Council (SGC) for a Proposition 84 disadvantaged community set-aside planning grant (the total funding pot is equal to approximately $12 million over three cycles).
