The Emergency Housing Assistance and Capital Development Program funds development activities for shelters and transitional housing. Funding is in the form of forgivable loans, granted through an annual competitive application process. Local government agencies and non-profits are eligible to apply for funding. In FY11-12, 2,078 shelter spaces were provided.
The program is state-funded through Proposition 1C State bond funds. Proposition 1C issued a $2.85 billion bond for affordable housing and infrastructure in 2006. Of this amount, $42 million was allocated for the Emergency Housing Assistance Program. In FY11-12, $23 million were distributed across the state. The State Department of Housing and Community Development announced the availability of approximately $10 million for FY15.
