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 Key Connections 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 Guidelines. The PATH is one of the programmatic areas identified in SCAG’s REAP 2.0 Program Framework. As envisioned, the PATH program will provide grant funding through a competitive evaluation process for projects with transformative and significant beneficial impacts accelerating infill development that facilitates housing supply, choice, and affordability; affirmatively furthering fair housing; and reducing vehicle miles traveled.
