Grants and loans to California public, nonprofit, or for-profit housing developers and owners to provide stable housing and supportive services to residents who qualify for the state healthcare program. Funding will be provided in the form of grants for project-based operating assistance or capital loans for acquisition and/or new construction.

This funding furthers the goal of Assembly Bill 74 (Chapter 777, Statutes of 2017), as amended by Assembly Bill 957, by providing capital loans and operating reserve grants to developers for permanent Supportive housing for individuals who are Chronically homeless, or Homeless and a High-cost health user.

The intent of this program is to allow individuals experiencing significant barriers to housing stability to benefit from Supportive housing opportunities while decreasing their utilization of emergency departments, inpatient care, and nursing home stays.

Proposed projects must be eligible pursuant to Guidelines Section 103, Uses and Terms. Eligible uses include:

  1. Loans for acquisition and/or new construction. Rehabilitation is not an eligible activity under this NOFA.
  2. Grants for project-based operating assistance in the form of a Capitalized Operating Subsidy Reserve (COSR).

The Department will set-aside at least 20 percent of the funding for projects located in Rural Areas, as noted in the NHTF allocation plan. If the rural set-aside is not utilized, then the 20 percent of the funding is re-allocated to the entire allocation; it is not rolled over into future funding rounds.

For more details on eligible uses of funds, see Section 103 of the Guidelines:

Each application must include a project-specific Supportive Services plan. For details on required and optional supportive services, see Section 112 of the Guidelines:
