Regional Early Action Planning (REAP)

Subregional Partnerships & Funding


SCAG has been granted $47 million in Regional Early Action Planning (REAP) funding from Assembly Bill (AB) 101 to administer RHNA and provide housing planning and process improvement services to cities and counties. SCAG is setting aside approximately $23 million, or 50 percent, of its REAP funding, for the Subregional Partnership Program, which will fund a call for projects from subregional partners that augment local SB 2 and LEAP activities. Funding allocation for this program will be based on the final RHNA allocation. The first date to file applications is September 17, 2020 and an intent to apply must be submitted by September 30, 2020. All applications must be submitted by December 1, 2020. Eligible projects for funding include, for example, housing element preparation, temporary staffing assistance for housing-related work, and accessory dwelling unit ordinances. All projects from this program must be completed by June 30, 2023.
