Local REAP 1.0 Activities

In 2021, local jurisdictions submitted applications to SJCOG for their respective allocation of REAP funds.  Please refer to the final SJCOG REAP Guidelines Packet for information about eligible activities.

Local jurisdictions have utilized Regional Early Action Planning (REAP) funds in various ways. Some of the most common uses include updates to housing elements, improvements to the permit process, and many more. Each local jurisdiction determined what was uniquely needed for their community and a summary of REAP 1.0 funded activities underway may be found below. These activities are expected to be complete by December 2023.
