I received news that Los Angeles County has been awarded $8,612,135.00 from the California Department of Housing & Community Development from the Regional Early Action Planning Grants of 2021 (REAP 2.0). This program represents a key part of the state’s strategic investments toward a more sustainable, resilient, and inclusive future.
REAP 2.0 is a flexible program that seeks to accelerate progress towards our state housing goals and climate commitments through a strengthened partnership between the state, its regions, and local entities. REAP 2.0 seeks to accelerate infill housing development, reduce Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT), increase housing supply at all affordability levels, affirmatively further fair housing, and facilitate the implementation of adopted regional and local plans to achieve these goals.
This new program was established as part of the 2021 California Comeback Plan under AB 140.
