2008-2009 CA State budget that was passed a few day late and at t terrible price to those who depend on State money to operate there businesses.

*Business, Transportation, and Housing
Department of Housing and Community Development*

The Budget includes $1.0 billion ($15.1 million General Fund) and 622.7 positions to fund the state's housing assistance programs. This is a decrease of $425.6 million from 2007-08. This decrease results from higher 2007-08 Proposition 1C expenditures due to program accelerations and one-time allocations. These include $150 million for the Infill Housing and the Transit Oriented Development programs to stimulate the state's economy by accelerating housing projects that provide construction industry jobs,$170 million for the California Homebuyers Assistance and the Residential Development Loan programs administered by the California Housing Finance Agency, and a one-time allocation of $60 million to the California Pollution Control Financing Authority to provide loans and grants for brownfield mitigation that promotes infill residential and mixed use development.

Proposition 1C authorizes $2.8 billion to improve housing opportunities in the state. The Department of Housing and Community Development awarded $923 million for existing programs in 2007-08 and expects to make awards totaling $741 million in 2008-09 for the following program areas:

Affordable homeownership programs -$148 million to help families become or remain homeowners.
Affordable rental housing construction -$101 million to provide affordable rental housing for the state's lower-income workforce, the elderly, disabled, and veterans.

Housing for farmworkers -$40 million for new rental housing and affordable home ownership opportunities for farmworker families.

Permanent housing for the homeless -$93 million to build permanent housing for the homeless, those transitioning out of homelessness, and emancipated foster care youth.

Homeless shelter housing -$24 million to construct and expand shelters of last resort and transitional housing for the homeless.

Building Equity and Growth in Neighborhoods (BEGIN)-$40 million for grants to cities and counties to make deferred-payment second mortgage loans to qualified buyers of new homes.

Transit-oriented development -$95 million to develop and construct new housing close to transit stations.

Infill Incentive Grants -$200 million for a competitive-based grant program to construct critical infrastructure that will stimulate the construction of new housing in existing neighborhoods and encourage efficient land use and development.

No wonder Glendora, California is moving so very quit and fast with sneakers flying to make headway in covering up and making token adjustments to their HUD commenments.

The city failed to meet a multitude of federal requirements in handling money from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

HUD officials documented 31 violations that included failure to monitor recipients of federal dollars, failure to document how federal money was spent and paying for administrative staff activities while failing to produce affordable housing units for residents.

On September 24, 2012 the League of California Cities filed a complaint against the state and other defendants, challenging AB 1484, the redevelopment budget trailer bill.

The lawsuit was filed in Sacramento Superior Court and has been assigned to Judge Michael Kenney.

The lawsuit challenges AB 1484 on constitutional and other grounds.

In particular, the lawsuit asserts that the sales tax and property tax clawback provisions violate both Proposition 1A and Prop. 22.
