On March 2, 2020, the City began accepting applications for funding and other City-dedicated resources to catalyze further development of affordable housing within Sacramento. In light of potential revenue impacts due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the City must perform new financial forecasts over the coming months to determine its future bonding capacity.

In the meantime, the City will continue to accept Affordable Housing Development Application Portal responses and will review submitted applications on a rolling basis for projects that require non-monetary assistance (land, technical support, process information, etc.) and/or that might be supported by future federal and state economic assistance.

Applications will be reviewed using the City Council’s adopted Affordable Housing Trust Fund Framework and any other relevant source criteria. Although there is currently no deadline to apply, the City may close the application at any time.

While the Inclusive Economic Development work at the City continues, funding decisions and meetings are on hold for the foreseeable future. 

Between November 19, 2019 and January 31, 2020, the City of Sacramento (“City”) accepted applications for Inclusive Economic Development Investments (“Investments”) under the City’s Inclusive Economic Development Investment Funding Guidelines (“Funding Guidelines”). The purpose of Investments is to foster economic and community development and job growth within the City of Sacramento that create opportunities for all of Sacramento’s residents, while at the same time prioritizing strategic investments for people of color, low-income individuals, and underinvested communities.

The Fund will use city dollars to make Investments in projects and programs that advance inclusive economic development and reduce inequities by:

  • Improving the health, stability and economic security of residents and neighborhoods;
  • Fostering business and job growth; increasing household wealth;
  • Encouraging productivity; and,
  • Supporting people, places, and actions that promote economic growth throughout the City’s diverse communities.
