Notice of Document Availability and Public Hearing
Permanent Local Housing Allocation Application

In 2017, Senate Bill 2 (the Building Homes and Jobs Act) created the Permanent Local Housing Allocation (PLHA) Program. The primary goal of the PLHA program, administered under the State of California's Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), is to create a permanent source of funding available to eligible local governments in California for housing-related projects and programs to address unmet housing needs in local communities.

On February 26, 2020 HCD released a PLHA Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). The Program Guidelines provide for agencies to delegate authority and submit joint applications when appropriate or considered desirable by both parties.  The City of Roseville must complete and submit an application as well as prepare and submit a PLHA Plan, approved by City Council. The City of Roseville will also submit an additional application for the City of Rocklin’s funds allocation as allowed in the NOFA. 

The table below sets forth the amount of funding allocated in Year 1 (actual) and an estimate of the amount of funding to be received during the five years of the PLHA Plan. Annual amounts will vary year to year based upon revenue realized under SB2.  These figures come from HCD's PLHA Notice of Funding Availability and reflect an inflation factor in future years' revenue projections.

Eligible PLHA activities span a variety of undertakings related to housing, with a maximum of 5% to cover the City's program administrative costs. As detailed in the PLHA Plan, the City proposes to fund the current Homeless Prevention and Rapid Rehousing programs which assist persons who are at risk of homelessness or are experiencing homelessness. The programs will include, but are not limited to, providing rapid rehousing, rental assistance, operating and capital costs for navigation centers and supportive/case management services which allow people to obtain and retain housing.  The NOFA stipulates that funding must be provided in a manner consistent the Housing First practices described in 25 CCR, Section 8409, subdivision (b)(1)-(6) and in compliance with Welfare Institutions Code (WIC) Section 8255 (b)(8).
