SACRAMENTO – The State of California has awarded an additional $2.2 million to San Joaquin County through the Permanent Local Housing Allocation (PHLA) program.
“It’s encouraging to see this level of support starting to come into our local communities on a more regular basis,” said Assemblymember Villapudua. “These funds from the PLHA program will serve as an important bridge to address the unmet housing needs of our local residents.”
This funding is provided to help cities and counties:
- Increase the supply of housing for households at or below 60 percent of the area’s 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, and
- Ensure geographic equity in the distribution of funds.
