Affordable housing that supports walking,
biking and transit now has a source of funding to get across the finish line

The State’s Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) program provides affordable housing loans and capital grants for the creation of affordable housing in conjunction with transportation improvements. The goal of AHSC is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) and vehicle miles traveled (VMT), and increase accessibility of housing, employment centers and key destinations through low-carbon transportation options such as walking, biking, and transit. Additionally, AHSC prioritizes funding for communities impacted by pollution.

The draft guidelines for Round 4 of AHSC can be found here. The expected application deadline for Round 4 is January 2019.

Technical Assistance from Los Angeles County

As part of Los Angeles County’s Homeless Initiative goal to increase affordable housing, the County is providing technical assistance to developers of eligible projects in unincorporated areas, and partnering on the transportation-related planning for the projects. The County partnered on four applications for Round 3 funding. On June 28, 2018, SGC awarded three of the County’s four AHSC applications, for a total of $40 million!

With the infrastructure in place to support AHSC applications, the County is gearing up for Round 4. The application deadline is around the corner, so the time to start is now!
