ADU Grant Program from CalHFA

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) Grant Program

Are you adding a granny flat, in-law unit, backyard cottage, secondary unit, or other innovative, affordable, and effective option for added housing in California? If so, you may be eligible for financial assistance through the California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA).
