Background 

Proposition 1 authorized $300 million to the LHTF Program to provide matching grants to Local Housing Trust Funds so that they can fund affordable housing.

The LHTF program funds may be used for predevelopment costs, acquisition costs, and other costs associated with development or rehabilitation of Affordable rental housing projects, Emergency Shelters, Permanent Supportive Housing, Transitional Housing, and Affordable Homeownership Projects or Units within a Homeownership Project. The LHTF funds may also be used for the construction, repair, and reconstruction or rehabilitation of Accessory Dwelling Units or Junior Accessory Dwelling Units.
