Interested in working with us?

Your consideration of building an ADU and your willingness to contact HPP CARES Team is truly an honor. The HPP CARES team is committed to being transparent and upfront with all its participants. There is a great deal of excitement surrounding the reopening of the portal TBD by the CALHFA. (CALHFA PROVIDERS ADU Grant Program | CalHFA)

Unfortunately, the number of available grants is less than 150 grant opportunities. Our current preference is not to participate in accepting applications and gathering consumer information. This would fuel false narratives that will leave homeowners anxiously awaiting grants yet again for funding that is not available.

For households that applied with our agency on October 29, we will continue to work from our current waitlist starting TBD by the CALHFA. You are welcome to join our notification system wherein we gather limited information about you, such as your name, address, and phone number. This is so that we can contact you in the event new funding becomes available. Please note Governor Newsom has indicated the State of California is in a budget deficit at this time. Until we are notified otherwise, we have chosen to pause accepting new applications. As soon as additional funding becomes available, we will inform you that the application acceptance process will begin; at that point, we will request your personal details. It is appreciated that you have taken the time to understand why we have chosen not to fuel another wave of frustration. If you would like to learn more about other providers' programs, please contact them directly. However, we advise you to ask questions prior to providing all your personal information. Are there any ways you can help HPP CARES advocate for more funding? We invite you to review our petition if it falls in line please sign it, and let us know via email if you are willing to participate in a call to address the legislative body overseeing the program.

HPP CARES will continue to offer many resources to future ADU'ers - for free while we all wait for the Governor and The State to consider providing additional funding. Educational Webinars (HPP CARES HOW TO ADU - resuming in TBD by the CALHFA calendar will be updated in the coming week)

HPP CARES CDE's accomplishments these past few years have been significant and all-encompassing; striving to advocate under the National Coalition for Equities’ umbrella to maintain a powerful community voice among the Federal and State regulators and major private sector corporations to address public policy issues, and to focus on the wealth & income inequality affecting affordable homeownership and small business growth. With the NCFE, HPP CARES CDE’s outreach efforts have led to an increase in corporate social responsibility and consumer protection. We have been able to reach more people, collaborate with more companies, meet with more regulators, all in the name of helping deserving individuals become sustainable homebuyers, successful small business owners, protected consumers and empowering California communities. HPP CARES CDE is at the forefront of helping people of color become partners in our mission to reduce income and wealth inequality and build stronger futures for all minority groups.
