SANDAG Sets Housing Funds Workshop

By Matt Adams
Funding intended to increase affordable housing will be discussed at a May 16th SANDAG workshop. Almost $123 million is available to local governments to streamline and accelerate housing production under Senate Bill 2 that was approved by the voters in 2017. SANDAG is working with the Department of Housing and Community Development to inform jurisdictions on how best to secure a portion of the funds locally. Jurisdictions must have a certified Housing Element or Annual Progress Report to be eligible for the funds. The May 16th workshop will run from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
