No Place Like Home

On October 15, 2018 HCD announced the availability of approximately $400 million in Round 1 Competitive Allocation funds for the No Place Like Home (NPLH) Program. It is anticipated that there will be at least three additional rounds of funding before NPLH funds are exhausted.

The NPLH Program provides deferred payment loans for the development of Permanent Supportive Housing (minimum of 5 units) for persons with a serious mental illness who are Homeless, Chronically Homeless or At-Risk of Chronic Homelessness. NPLH funds may be used to acquire, design, construct, rehabilitate, or preserve Permanent Supportive Housing, which may also include a Capitalized Operating Subsidy Reserve.

Under NPLH Program, counties may apply for funding solely or jointly with development sponsor(s). The County intends to collaborate with qualified developer(s) with relevant experience in affordable housing development, property management and asset management, to compete for No Place Like Home funds in the Round 1 Competitive Allocation of $93.5 million set-aside for eleven Large Counties, as defined by HCD, for the development and operations of affordable housing dedicated to the target population.

The County of Ventura Behavioral Health Department, in collaboration with the County Executive Office’s Community Development Division is requesting proposals from affordable housing developers interested in applying jointly with the County to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) for No Place Like Home (NPLH) Competitive Allocation funding. Please review the Ventura County No Place Like Home Request for Proposals linked below.
