DDS Affordable Housing (DDS-AH)

The Governors' 2001 budget allocated $2.9 million to increase affordable housing for consumers of the regional center system. $2.9 million was granted through a Request for Proposal (RFA) process under the DDS-AH project.

The DDS-AH projects are designed to increase Capacity Building & Housing Production of affordable housing for persons with developmental disabilities. A Capacity Building project develops resources in the community for persons with developmental disabilities to acquire affordable housing. Housing Production projects increase the stock of affordable housing through the purchase, rehabilitation, or construction of real property.

Up to $100,000 was granted for capacity building projects and up to $300,000 was granted to projects related to housing production. A total of twenty-three projects, covering most of California were funded. Below is a list of the projects funded. A description of the projects can be reviewed in the 2002 Housing Legislative Report.
