Local Early Action Planning Grant Program

As COVID-19 continues to have an impact on the region’s health and economy, SCAG is committed to helping local jurisdictions navigate and meet the state’s housing goals and requirements. As a part of the recently passed Assembly Bill 101, the department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) established the Local Early Action Planning Grant Program (LEAP) with $119 million for cities and counties. Cities and counties in compliance with state housing laws are eligible to apply for grants ranging from $65,000 to $1.5 million, based on the jurisdiction population size and on a non-competitive basis. This one-time grant funding can be used for the preparation and adoption of planning documents, process improvements to accelerate housing production, and to facilitate compliance with the sixth cycle of the Regional Housing Needs Assessment. Jurisdictions must submit their applications by January 31, 2021. Visit the HCD website for more information on LEAP.
