Making great communities happen

HCD awards $158M in infrastructure grants to support new affordable homes

By Alex Traverso, HCD, December 2, 2021

The California Department of Housing and Community Development’s awards come from the “Infill Infrastructure Grant (IIG) program to communities throughout the state for infrastructure improvements that support the development of affordable and mixed-income housing.

“Funded by the Veterans and Affordable Housing Bond Act of 2018 (Proposition 1), the primary objective of the IIG program is to promote infill housing development by providing financial assistance for Capital Improvement Projects that are an integral part of or necessary to facilitate the development of infill housing. Although the program does not fund the development of the housing itself, the infrastructure it provides is necessary for housing development.”
