Housing Planning Grants Available Now

April 4, 2019

The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) has released the SB 2 Planning Grants Program Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for approximately $123 million.

The Planning Grants Program provides one-time, over-the-counter grants to local governments to update a variety of planning documents and processes that streamline housing approvals and accelerate housing production.

Over-the-counter applications will be accepted for an eight-month period ending on November 30, 2019.

As part of the Planning Grants Program, HCD, in coordination with the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research, will work with a team led by Placeworks to provide local technical assistance (TA) to applicants throughout the application period. The TA team will work closely with regions, sub-regions, and counties to help jurisdictions identify activities and provide tools that will accelerate housing production.
