Existing law establishes the multifamily housing program under the administration of the Department of Housing and Community Development to provide a standardized set of program rules and features applicable to all housing types based on the department's California Housing Rehabilitation Program. Existing law also establishes the CalHome Program under the administration of the department to provide grants and loans to enable low- and very low income households to become or remain homeowners. Existing federal law requires the Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development to establish a Housing Trust Fund to provide grants to states to increase the supply of rental housing for extremely low- and very low income families, including homeless families, and homeownership for extremely low- and very low income families. This bill would designate the department as the state agency responsible for administering the federal Housing Trust Fund. The bill would require the department to administer the federal funds pursuant to the multifamily housing program, except that up to 10% of the funds may be appropriated by the Legislature to the CalHome Program. The bill would require the department to submit reports with specified information relating to the distribution, awarding, and expenditure of the federal funds, as prescribed. The California Constitution authorizes the Governor to declare a fiscal emergency and to call the Legislature into special session for that purpose. The Governor issued a proclamation declaring a fiscal emergency, and calling a special session for this purpose, on January 8, 2010. This bill would state that it addresses the fiscal emergency declared by the Governor by proclamation issued on January 8, 2010, pursuant to the California Constitution.
