Sustainable Communities Grant and Loan Program
Report of Activities 2005

Next Steps

Legislation has been introduced by the Committee on Environmental Safety and Toxic Materials to extend the operation of the SCGL Program until January 1, 2012, and would increase the amount of the grants and loans under the program to $7,500,000. If passed, CPCFA will proceed with an additional funding round in early summer 2006. In preparation for the new funding round, CPCFA staff will also hold a case studies conference in early spring 2006 to share "lessons learned" and provide "helpful hints" for cities and counties working on sustainable communities projects.


This report of activities for the Sustainable Communities Grant and Loan Program (SCGL) is submitted pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 44525.6 for the calendar year ending December 31, 2005.
