The Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) is pleased to announce the availability of approximately $120 million in funding for the Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) Program (Program). The AHSC Program furthers the purposes of AB 32 (Chapter 488, Statues 2006) and SB 375 (Chapter 728, Statutes, 2008) by investing in projects that reduce GHG emissions by supporting more compact, infill development patterns, encouraging active transportation and transit usage, and protecting agricultural land from sprawl development. Funding for the AHSC Program is provided from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF), an account established to receive Cap-and-Trade auction proceeds. The AHSC Program is administered by SGC. HCD will implement the transportation, housing and infrastructure component of the AHSC Program. SGC will coordinate efforts with HCD, working with the California Air Resources Board (ARB), to administer the broader AHSC Program, which includes the Sustainable Agricultural Land Conservation (SALC) Program. A complete original concept proposal must be submitted to HCD using the Financial Assistance Application Submittal Tool (FAAST) system no later than 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 19, 2015. Invited applicants must submit a complete original full application, plus one copy, to HCD no later than 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15, 2015.

The Sustainable Agricultural Lands Conservation (SALC) program component supports the protection and management of California's agricultural lands. Through planning and permanent protection of farm and ranch lands via agricultural easements, the SALC program will prevent increases in GHG emissions by limiting opportunities for expansive, vehicle dependent forms of development in favor of more focused, compact, and transit oriented development within discrete growth boundaries. Additionally, the SALC program will support in future years, farm-scale conservation management practices that further promote reductions in GHG emissions and increases in soil carbon sequestration.

The Energy Partnership Program offers services to help identify the most cost-effective energy saving opportunities for an applicant’s facilities. Facilities built with energy efficient designed cost less to operate which means continuous savings from the first day of operation. This program will provide technical assistance to your architectural and engineering team early in the design phase, before the plans are finalize, up to $20,000 of the consultant’s cost. The goal is to reduce energy consumption significantly below the state’s minimum building efficiency standard (Title 24). There is no final filing date. However, program funds are limited and applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
