Grants to California government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and private entities for housing programs in eligible locations. Applicants must attend a training session prior to applying. Funding is intended to support the acquisition, restoration, and new construction of housing for low-income and homeless households. This grant program supports the development of affordable housing that serve Santa Barbara County residents.


HOME Investment Partnership Program (HOME) and In-Liew Funds: The primary purpose of the HOME program is to provide affordable housing to low-income households. HOME may be used for a variety of programs, including:

  • Homeowner rehabilitation: HOME funds may be used to assist existing owner-occupants with the repair, rehabilitation, or reconstruction of their homes.
  • Homebuyer activities: Finance the acquisition and/or rehabilitation or new construction of homes for homebuyers.
  • Rental housing: Affordable rental housing may be acquired and/or rehabilitated, or constructed.
  • Tenant-based rental assistance (TBRA): Financial assistance for rent, security deposits, and, under certain conditions, utility deposits may be provided to tenants. Assistance for utility deposits may only be provided in conjunction with a TBRA security deposit or monthly rental assistance program.

For additional information about HOME and In-Lieu Funds, see:

California No Place Like Home: The program provides funding and tools to address affordability issues associated with creating housing units that are specifically set aside for persons with serious mental illness who are chronically homeless, homeless, or at-risk of being chronically homeless. Under the program, the State (and in some cases, the County) may make loans to reduce the initial cost of acquisition and/or construction or rehabilitation of housing and may set funds aside to subsidize extremely low rent levels over time. 

For additional information see:

CDBG-DR MHP: For disaster relief and multi-family housing. Projects requesting CDBG -DR MHP funds and must prioritize available housing units for households affected by the Thomas Fire disaster first and foremost.

Permanent Local Housing Allocation (PLHA): The PLHA program will help to:

  • Increase the supply of housing for households at or below 60% of area median income
  • Increase assistance to affordable owner-occupied workforce housing
  • Assist persons experiencing or at risk of homelessness
  • Facilitate housing affordability, particularly for lower- and moderate-income households
  • Promote projects and programs to meet the local government’s unmet share of regional housing needs allocation
  • Ensure geographic equity in the distribution of the funds
