Cal. Code Regs. Tit. 25, § 7957 - Allocation and Distribution of Funds

(a) The allocation to urban counties shall not exceed eighty percent of the funds available each fiscal year. Urban county allocations shall be based solely upon the following two factors:
(1) The ratio of: the number of persons in the urban county living below the poverty line to the total number of persons living below the poverty line in all urban counties of the State according to the most recent federal census, updated, if possible, with an estimate by the California Department of Finance; and
(2) The ratio of: the number of persons unemployed in the urban county to the total number of persons unemployed in all urban counties of the State based on the most recent one-year period for which data is available.
(b) Each allocation to an urban county shall be determined based upon the sum of the urban county's ratios as calculated per subsection (a).
(1) All urban counties shall be ranked in the order of the highest ratio sum to the lowest ratio sum, and urban counties with equal ratio sums shall be grouped.
(2) A minimum allocation of $10,000 shall be made available to each urban county within the group with the lowest ratio sum.
(3) Each ratio sum, other than the lowest sum, shall be converted to a percentage, with the sum of the percentages equaling 100%.
(4) Following the deduction of the minimum allocations from the funds available, the balance of the funds shall be divided into groups in proportion to the percentages determined by the calculation required by subsection (b)(3).
(5) The amount of funds available to each group shall be allocated in equal proportions to each of the urban counties within the group.
(c) The allocation to nonurban counties shall not be less than twenty percent of the funds available each fiscal year. Nonurban regional allocations shall be based solely upon the following two factors:
(1) The ratio of: the number of persons in the nonurban county living below the poverty line to the total number of persons living below the poverty line in all nonurban counties of the State according to the most recent federal census, updated, if possible, with an estimate by the California Department of Finance; and
(2) The ratio of: the number of persons unemployed in the nonurban county to the total number of persons unemployed in all nonurban counties of the State, based on the most recent one-year period for which data is available.
(d) Each allocation to a nonurban county shall be determined based upon the sum of the nonurban county's ratios for persons living below the poverty line and for persons unemployed as calculated per subsection (c).
(1) All nonurban counties shall be ranked in the order of the highest ratio sum to the lowest ratio sum, and nonurban counties with equal ratio sums shall be grouped.
(2) A minimum allocation of $10,000 shall be made available to each nonurban county within the group with the lowest ratio sum.
(3) Each ratio sum, other than the lowest sum, shall be converted to a percentage, with the sum of the percentages equaling 100%.
(4) Following the deduction of the minimum allocations from the funds available, the balance of the funds shall be divided into groups in proportion to the percentages determined by the calculation required by subsection (d)(3).
(5) The amount of funds available to each group shall be allocated in equal proportions to each of the nonurban counties within the group.
(e) If two or more counties form a consortium under a DLB, the total allocation for that subsequent region shall be the sum of the individual county allocations available as described in the Statewide NOFA. Each county shall receive its respective share of the allocation in client housing and/or rental assistance.
(f) The Department may designate, the eligible use(s) for which a specified allocation of funds is restricted when:
(1) The original source of the funds allocated to the Department restricts the use of those funds (e.g., bond funds for capital development); or
(2) The Department identifies a particular Statewide need among eligible activities and facilities for funding; or
(3) The total allocation to the Department for program use is less than the amount needed to fund the minimum allocation of $10,000 per county.
(g) The Department shall provide a written explanation of the necessity for designating the eligible use of a specific allocation. This explanation shall appear in the NOFA issued by the Department for the specific allocation, pursuant to section 7958.
(h) The allocation term is two years, beginning the date the Department issues the Statewide NOFA for the specific allocation.
(i) At the end of the two-year allocation term, any allocation balance not encumbered shall be returned to the Emergency Housing and Assistance Fund for allocation as part of the next Statewide NOFA.
(j) For any county without a DLB, when there are no applicants, the allocation balance will revert to the EHAF and be allocated as part of the next Statewide NOFA.
(k) The minimum grant is $10,000 except as follows:
(1) For counties with an allocation greater than $20,000, one grant less than $10,000 may be awarded if necessary to fully utilize the county's allocation.
(2) For counties with an allocation of up to $20,000, up to two grants of less than $10,000 may be awarded.
(l) The maximum grant amounts are as stated in sections7963 and 7966, or, for regions with a DLB, such lesser amounts as a DLB has established in its approved LESS.
