REGIONAL EARLY ACTION PROGRAM (REAP)
SGVCOG was awarded funding from the Southern California Association of Government (SCAG) Regional Early Action Program (REAP) Subregional Partnership Program. REAP is intended to help accelerate housing production throughout the SCAG region, which includes the San Gabriel Valley, and have a net-positive effect on housing supply by increasing housing planning, meeting the sixth cycle regional housing needs assessment (RHNA). The planning activities are to accommodate the development of housing and infrastructure that will accelerate housing production in a way that aligns with state planning priorities, housing, transportation, equity, and climate goals and regional priorities.
Based on research and assessments among the SGVCOG Homelessness Policy Committee, Homelessness Working Group, and San Gabriel Valley Regional Housing Trust (SGVRHT), the following five programs received funding:
Affordable Housing Incubator Program
ADU Pre-Approved Plans
Monrovia, Sierra Madre, Alhambra, Baldwin Park, Claremont, El Monte, South El Monte, South Pasadena

Being energy efficient results in less energy consumption. This can save residents and organizations money spent on your energy bill. This is one of the most common reasons why many began to cultivate a culture of energy consciousness; however, it is certainly not the only reason! Less energy used means less fossil fuels burned. While there are cleaner methods to generate energy, much of the electricity generated today is still from non-renewable sources such as oil and coal. Being energy efficient can help lower pollution and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
