Permanent Local Housing Allocation (PLHA) Grant Application Proposed Activities Plan

The Housing Programs Office continues to pursue funding opportunities that will support the City’s goals related to developing affordable housing. To that end, the City is eligible to apply for the Permanent Local Housing Allocation (PLHA) grant. The purpose of the PLHA is to provide a permanent source of funding to all local governments in California to help cities and counties implement plans to increase the affordable housing stock. 

Funding would be received each year, for five years, based on the formula prescribed under federal law for the Community Development Block Grant. The preliminary amount for the City of Monterey for year-one is $116,419, or approximately $698,514 or the five-year period. Only 5% is allocated for administrative costs.

This is a non-competitive Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) process with a deadline of July 26, 2020.
