Applications will be reviewed by a committee. The review committee is not yet formed. SACOG is considering a review committee of up to five reviewers, including two SACOG staff and up to three external professionals with experience in housing, planning, economic development, or other related activities. The review committee will have an opportunity to discuss all applications as a committee but will individually score each application. Based on the highest overall scores, SACOG staff and management will recommend a full project list to the SACOG Board for funding awards, tentatively scheduled for June 2021. 

Non-Competitive Grants

Approximately $2.8 million is allocated to non-competitive grants. SACOG is providing grant funds to each jurisdiction for housing planning that has a nexus to increased housing production. Grant amounts are based on the jurisdiction’s share of units in the 2021-2029 Regional Housing Needs Plan.

In order to receive grant funds, cities and counties must either submit a letter to SACOG outlining how the grant funds will be used, or, use the form below to provide this information to SACOG. If submitting a letter, please use the form below as a checklist for what to include in your letter.
