CA HCD: Infill Infrastructure Grant Catalytic Qualifying Infill Area Program - Deadline 1/31/23

Concept Proposal Application

The California Department of Housing and Community Development (Department) is pleased to announce the release of the Concept Proposal Application for funding under the Infill Infrastructure Grant Catalytic Qualifying Infill Area (IIGC) program. Under the program, grants are available as gap funding for infrastructure improvements necessary for specific residential or mixed-use infill development.

The Concept Proposal Application is the first step of the IIGC application process:

  • In Phase I, Eligible Applicants will provide a Concept Proposal.

  • In Phase II, the Department will release a combined Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) and Guidelines document detailing programmatic requirements. Applicants deemed eligible in Phase I will be invited to apply, unless the IIGC program promises to be significantly oversubscribed. In that event the most competitive eligible applications will be invited to submit a full application.

To be considered for potential funding, Catalytic Qualifying Infill Area (CQIA) Concept Proposals must be submitted electronically via the IIGC Application Portal using the Concept Proposal Application forms and must include all required information detailed in the Application forms. The Portal is now open for registration.

Applicants must upload all application materials to the IIGC Application Portal no later than:

4:00 p.m. Pacific Time on January 31, 2023

Please note: A recording of the December 16, 2022 IIGC webinar will be posted on the IIG webpage shortly. To receive information on workshops and other updates, please subscribe to the Department’s listserv.

Background: The purpose of the IIGC program is to provide critical infrastructure funding necessary to unlock sites for residential development.

Many former commercial and underutilized areas have great potential for the development of housing but lack the infrastructure necessary to facilitate higher-density residential development. In addition to vacant infill parcels, IIGC proposals may include industrial or business parks, vacant shopping centers, strip malls, or scattered sites with vacant or underutilized structures. The IIGC program supports adaptive reuse of these structures or sites by providing financial assistance for Capital Improvement Projects that are an integral part of, or necessary to facilitate the development of housing within CQIA.
