Rep. Roybal-Allard, Rep. Barragán, Rep. Gomez, and the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco Announce $10.5 million in Affordable Housing Grants for Los Angeles


LOS ANGELES, June 26, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco (FHLBank San Francisco), along with Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-40), Congresswoman Nanette Diaz Barragán (CA-44), and Congressman Jimmy Gomez (CA-34), announced today that Los Angeles has received $10.5 million in Affordable Housing Program (AHP) grants. The funding was awarded to nine projects that will increase the supply of affordable housing for lower-income families and individuals.

The Los Angeles grants are part of total of $65.9 million in AHP grants awarded to 70 housing developments that will produce over 6,000 affordable units in Arizona, California, Nevada, and other states. FHLBank San Francisco member institutions work in partnership with community-based housing sponsors or developers to apply for funding through a competitive application process.

"Our members and their nonprofit partners are using the AHP to expand access to quality affordable housing for those who need it most," said Greg Seibly, President and CEO of FHLBank San Francisco. "Everyone deserves a place to call home."

Since 1990, the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco's AHP has provided more than $1 billion in grants, helping to produce over 131,000 affordable housing units. This video celebrates the $1 billion milestone and showcases the value of the AHP to individuals and communities.

This year, AHP grants totaling $10.5 million will support one project in Rep. Roybal-Allard's District, two projects in Rep. Barragán's District, and six projects in Rep. Gomez's District, all together producing 762 affordable housing units.

In the Rep. Roybal-Allard's 40th District, a $1.2 million AHP grant was awarded to Residences on Main, a new 50-unit permanent supportive housing development for homeless families and chronically homeless transition-age youth. Member City National Bank partnered with Coalition for Responsible Community Development on the grant application.

"The housing crisis in Los Angeles County has reached epic proportions, with lower income families finding themselves priced out of our costly real estate market," said Rep. Roybal-Allard. "Many chronically homeless people need more than just a roof over their heads, they require supportive services to help them transition into a stable housing situation. I'm happy to see that the FHLBank San Francisco has awarded Affordable Housing Program funding to bring 50 new units of permanent supportive housing to my district to help families and chronically homeless transition-aged youth move out of homelessness and build independent, healthy lives."

In Rep. Barragán's 44th District, the two projects receiving AHP funding are:

"These projects will help people struggling with homelessness by providing them with stable, safe homes," said Rep. Barragán. "The key though will be the wraparound services to help these fellow Angelenos put their lives back on track."

In Rep. Gomez's 34th District, the six projects receiving AHP funding are:

"It's fantastic to see the City of Los Angeles receive millions of dollars in funding toward building more affordable housing," said Rep. Gomez. "It's no secret that our city is facing a host of pressing housing challenges, and every unit we build will make a real difference in the life of someone in our community. As a member of Congress, I'll continue to support efforts that help put a roof over the head of every Angeleno, particularly the most vulnerable among us."
