The Subregional Partnership (SRP) 2.0 program will allocate $23 million on a non-competitive basis to subregional councils of governments (COGs) for REAP 2.0 eligible activities supporting cities and counties to implement projects and programs identified in their draft and/or final compliant Housing Element work plans.
The SRP 2.0 program focuses on implementation of the region’s housing elements as a means of investing in actions to accelerate infill development that facilities housing supply, choice, and affordability, affirmatively furthers fair housing and reduces vehicle miles traveled across the region. Additionally, the focus on Housing Element implementation recognizes these documents represent the local plans for realizing the RHNA and housing goals, and that it is SCAG’s intent to support locally identified and approved planning tools and programs.
Eligible applicants for Subregional Partnership Program funding are limited to agencies designated as subregions under this program. While most of SCAG’s fifteen defined subregional entities are considered as subregions for this program, several jurisdictions have membership in more than one subregion. Additionally, several jurisdictions span more than one subregion. For these reasons, the City of Los Angeles, County of Los Angeles, and County of Riverside are considered as individual subregional partners under this program. (See the SRP 2.0 Program Guidelines Attachments for a complete list of eligible subregional partners).
To participate in the program, a subregional partner must submit a notice of intent to apply for funding by 5:00 p.m. October 14, 2022.
If a subregional partner elects not to participate by not filing a notice, or if any subregional partnership funds remain unencumbered after the application deadline, these funds will be made available for projects in that subregion through the Housing Supportive Infrastructure Program.
Once the application period opens, applications will be reviewed by SCAG staff on an ongoing basis and will be assessed on eligibility, nexus to the REAP 2.0 program objectives and guidelines and SCAG regional priorities. The application period will close at 11:59 p.m. on February 10, 2023, unless extended.
On September 1, 2022 SCAG Regional Council approved the REAP 2021 Subregional Partnership 2.0 Program Guidelines, subject to the State’s approval
