More than $29 million in affordable housing funds and 121 project-based vouchers have been awarded to nine developments by the County of San Diego's Housing and Community Development Services (HCDS).

The notice of funding availability was made in July of 2022 and awards are now complete.

More than 600 units of affordable and permanent supportive housing will be made available for low and extremely low-income people and their family.

"This is another great opportunity for us to expand housing for our neighbors most in need," said David Estrella, director of County HCDS. "Each of these projects means the world to a struggling family or those with special needs who would otherwise be out on the street."

These units will become home to people experiencing homelessness with serious mental illness, physical or developmental disabilities, families, elderly, veterans and others.
