P. SCAG Regional Early Action Program funds to accelerate housing – 1:15 pm

  • SCAG will be providing subregions with funding to help their members with housing element data assistance, housing outreach toolkits and other Sustainable Communities Programs.  This is through the REAP program – Regional Early Action Program.  Subregions will receive funds based on their RHNA allocation which isn’t coming out until later but we can start deciding how to spend it now and even start spending in the fall.  Our subregion, based on the last RHNA cycle, would have an allocation of about $600,000 to be used by December 2023.  
  • The use of these funds must have a nexus to promoting the development of housing.  Community Development Directors have been asked whether they are updating housing elements, how much ADU development is taking place, what challenges they have, and if it would be helpful for us to hire someone at the SBCCOG who could be a resource to all of the cities and provide some cross cutting analysis as long as the result was to promote the development of housing.
