Strategic Growth Council to Hold Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities Grant Program Workshops

January 29, 2016

This week the Strategic Growth Council (SGC) announced six workshops to be held across the state to assist applicants interested in applying for the 2015-16 Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) program. Interested participants can also sign up for consultation with SGC staff regarding the eligibility of a specific project that is ready to apply for funding and other questions.

The workshops will include a presentation regarding the AHSC Program Guidelines and requirements for Concept Applications, with a question and answer session after the presentation. The morning session will last from 9:00-11:30 am.

According to the SGC, staff will be available on the afternoon of each workshop for small group or one-on-one consultations on a first come, first served basis. The consultations will be 20 minutes in length and will be used to focus on projects that are ready to apply for the 2015-2016 AHSC Program, discuss project eligibility, and answer questions specific to the applicant’s project. For consultation times, AHSC Program Staff will follow-up to confirm the exact time of the appointment. Applicants with projects in or benefitting Disadvantaged Communities (as defined byCalEnviroscreen 2.0) will be given priority for consultations. However, their goal is to provide consultations to all who request an appointment.

The final AHSC guidelines are available online here. Concept applications are due March 16 and applicants invited to submit a full application will be notified the week of April 20. Full applications will be due on June 20 and awards will be announced in September.
