Via Roble

Through the Housing Enabled by Local Partnerships (HELP) Program, the California State Housing Finance Agency provides local governments with an unsecured 10-year loan, at a 3.5 percent interest rate, which they can use to meet locally determined priorities for affordable homes. Established in 1998, the HELP Program has provided about $160 million in funding to support the development of more than 19,000 affordable rental and owner-occupied homes statewide. One example is a $1.85 million award to the city of Escondido to assist with site acquisition, development and rehabilitation of Via Roble.
