Background: SB 2 established the Fund and authorizes the Department to allocate 70 percent of moneys collected and deposited in the Fund, beginning in calendar year 2019, to Local governments for eligible housing and homelessness activities. The intent of the bill is to provide a permanent, on-going source of funding to Local governments for housing-related projects and programs that assist in addressing the unmet housing needs of their local communities.
