San Diego County announced $12 million in available funds for the acquisition, construction, and/or rehabilitation of multi-family affordable housing units for extremely low-income people and families. 

The county’s Housing and Community Development Services at the County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) recently released a Notice of Funding Availability, with dollars based on the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and the 120 Project-Based Vouchers. 

In addition to supporting individuals and families with extremely low income, the housing units aim to support those with physical or developmental disabilities, severe mental or substance use disorders, families, elderly veterans, and many others. 

“There is a tremendous need for affordable housing in the region, especially for residents with special needs,” said David Estrella, director of HHSA’s Housing and Community Development Services. “The new supportive housing units will provide some of our most vulnerable residents a permanent place to live.” 

According to the county, the funds will be provided in the form of loans to the successful applicants providing permanent supportive housing for extremely low-income households. 

Applications will be accepted through Sept. 30, ending at 2 p.m.
