Strategic Growth Council Hosts AHSC Workshops; League Schedules Feedback Webinar

July 30, 2014
The Strategic Growth Council (SGC) will hold three workshops in August to gather public input to inform guideline development for the SGC Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) Program.
 
Earlier this month, SGC released its proposed timeline on program guideline development workshops, approval and application deadlines, and when award recipients would be announced.

The FY 2014-15 budget agreement between Gov. Jerry Brown and the Legislature created the AHSC program. Cap-and-Trade auction revenues will provide $130 million in FY 2014-15 and 20 percent of auction revenues in future years to the AHSC program, which is designed to support the provision of affordable housing, transportation and other infrastructure that will result in a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. 
 
SGC will hold workshops at the following locations:
 
Fresno – Aug. 12 (Register)
1–4 p.m.
Fresno City Hall, Council Chambers
2600 Fresno Street

Please register in advance to save your space in the workshop as connections are limited. SGC requests no more than two registrations per organization. If you would like to send more than two representatives, please indicate so on the registration form and SGC will add additional representatives to a wait list. The wait list will be contacted in advance of the workshop if space is available. SGC will webcast and post a recording of one of the workshops on its website shortly after the meeting. Agenda and all meeting materials will be posted prior to the meetings.
 
League AHSC Webinar: Thursday, Aug. 7
 
The League will hold a webinar to brief members on the current status of the AHSC program and receive input from our membership on guideline development on Thursday, Aug. 7 at 1:30 p.m. The League is interested in receiving comments regarding past grant programs that may be used to guide the development of AHSC as well as general comments that the League can use during SGC workshops. To participate in the discussion, please send your name, title, city, and email address to Meg Desmond. Call-in information will be sent to registrants on Wednesday, Aug. 6.
