The 2024-2025 Action Plan will be the fifth and final year of program implementation under the 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan. It outlines community development and affordable housing strategies and priorities that will be supported with the following four federal funding sources administered by MOHCD, OEWD, and HSH during the program year that starts on July 1, 2024 and ends on June 30, 2025: Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), Home Investment Partnership (HOME), and Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA).

The estimated amount of funding the City and County of San Francisco will receive from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for 2024-2025 is as follows: CDBG - $18,000,000; ESG - $1,500,000; and HOME - $5,000,000. The City and County of San Francisco will receive an estimated $7,000,000 in HOPWA funding for San Francisco and San Mateo Counties. Please note that at the time of this notice, the 2024-2025 funding amounts for the four federal programs have not yet been issued by HUD.

The purpose of the Substantial Amendment to the 2021-2022 Action Plan is to incorporate the Allocation Plan for the Home Investment Partnership-American Rescue Plan (HOME-ARP) program. Funds were appropriated under the federal American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 for the HOME program to provide homelessness assistance and supportive services. The City and County of San Francisco will receive $18,707,742 under the HOME-ARP program from HUD. CDBG, ESG, HOME, HOME-ARP and HOPWA funds will be used to support the following five objectives, which are described in San Francisco’s 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan:

  • Families and individuals are stably housed;
  • Families and individuals are resilient and economically self-sufficient;
  • Communities have healthy physical, social, and business infrastructure;
  • Communities at risk of displacement are stabilized; and,
  • City works to eliminate the causes of racial disparities.

The Draft 2024-2025 Action Plan and the Draft Substantial Amendment to the 2021-2022 Action Plan will be available for public review and comment from February 29, 2024 to March 29, 2024.
