COUNTY OF LASSEN’S PERMANENT LOCAL HOUSING ALLOCATION (PLHA)
Notice is hereby given that the Board of Supervisors of the County of Lassen will consider a Five-Year Plan and Application for the Permanent Local Housing Allocation (PLHA) program on Tuesday, October 11, 2022, at 10:20 a.m. at their meeting in the Board of Supervisors Chambers, 707 Nevada Street, Susanville. The draft Plan and Application are posted on the Lassen County Community Social Services webpage at this link: http://www.lassencounty.org/dept/community-social-services/community-social-services
The PLHA program was established by the State of California through the Building Homes and Jobs Act (SB2) of 2017. PLHA is a broad, ongoing affordable housing program funded by fees collected from real estate transaction recordings statewide. The program is administered by the State in five-year cycles.
The County of Lassen is eligible to receive an annual allocation of formula PLHA funds, subject to the submission and approval of a Five-Year Plan and Application. The County’s estimated total allocation for the first five-year cycle is $612,043. This total allocation includes Year 1 funds of $102,007, Year 2 funds of $155,868, and Year 3 funds of $187,666.
The County proposes to use its allocation of formula PLHA funds for the first five years to establish capitalized reserves for services connected to the creation of new permanent supportive housing.
Members of the public are encouraged to attend the meeting and provide input on the proposed use of funds. Written comments may also be submitted to the County of Lassen by emailing Grace Poor, Housing Program Coordinator, at [email protected]
For the County of Lassen,
