Excess Sites Local Government Matching Grants Program (LGMG)



In 2019, Governor Gavin Newsom signed Executive Order N-06-19 authorizing HCD and the Department of General Services (DGS) to locate excess state land suitable for development of affordable housing. The Excess Sites Local Government Matching Grants Program (LGMG) will provide grant-based funding to match certain local government funding for selected developers and local governments for predevelopment and development of affordable housing on excess state sites.


The goals of LGMG are to:

  1. Accelerating housing production on excess state sites, and
  2. Facilitating a spirit of collaboration between the state, local governments, and selected developers to meaningfully engage communities for multi-benefit outcomes.
