HCD’s Housing-Related Parks Program
uses voter-approved funds from the Housing and Emergency Shelter Trust Fund Act of 2006
to expand and improve the availability of parks and recreation facilities within communities. The largest share of the funding, 71 percent is allocated to communities that are both disadvantaged and park-deficient.
HCD expanded its awareness campaign for the Housing-Related Parks Program, and as a result, many more California cities and counties are applying and taking advantage of this useful grant program.
