The Department requires all Applicants to engage in a pre-application consultation with the Department prior to applying. The consultation will allow the prospective Applicant to discuss the proposed project, along with other applicable programmatic considerations, including those related to site acquisition, the CEQA, land use and land entitlements, CoC coordination and services partnerships, and long-term financing approaches.
Prospective applicants can request pre-application consultations by emailing Homekey@hcd.ca.gov. Please include “Pre-Application Consultation Request” in the subject line so your request is routed appropriately.
Note: upon receiving your Pre-Application Consultation Request, the Department will email you a brief survey to learn more about your proposed Homekey project and any questions you have about the Homekey program. Please look for this email and complete the survey as soon as possible.
