Programs to Accelerate Transformative Housing (PATH)

Please note that the Housing Supportive Infrastructure Program (HSIP) has been renamed to Programs to Accelerate Transformative Housing (PATH). The program’s objectives and main priority areas remain the same.

The Programs to Accelerate Transformative Housing (PATH) in the REAP 2.0 Program Framework builds on concepts put forward in the Housing Supportive Infrastructure Key Connection in Connect SoCal 2020, as well as current work funded through the REAP 1.0 program, the Local Early Action Planning Grant Program, and Senate Bill 2.

SCAG is seeking input on the newly released draft REAP 2.0 PATH program. The PATH program realizes the Housing Supportive Infrastructure programmatic area identified in SCAG’s REAP 2.0 Program Framework. As envisioned, the PATH program will support transformative and significant beneficial actions accelerating infill development that facilitates housing supply, choice, and affordability; affirmatively furthering fair housing; and reducing vehicle miles traveled through a Notice Of Funding Available (NOFA) and two pilot programs designed to bring housing production to scale across the Southern California region to meet the 6th Cycle RHNA.
