Continuing Action – Work to Increase the Supply and Variety of Housing Types

In November 2015, SANDAG collaborated with the San Diego Housing Federation to bring together affordable housing developers, local planning and public works staff, transit operators, regional bike and transit planners, and Strategic Growth Council staff to discuss the Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) Program, a statewide competitive grant program funded by Cap-and-Trade proceeds that provides funding for housing and transportation projects that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Six applications submitted to the AHSC from the San Diego region were invited to submit full applications, which are due June 20, 2016.

SANDAG held workshops and provided technical support in collaboration with the San Diego Housing Federation to support applications from the San Diego regional to the California Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) grant program.

SANDAG released the Call for Projects for the Fourth Cycle of the TransNet Smart Growth Incentive Program (SGIP) and Active Transportation Grant Program (ATGP), which includes up to $1 million for local jurisdictions to prepare or complete Climate Action Plans and Complete Streets Policies.
