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)

As a social enterprise, HPP CARES CDE has achieved significant and wide-ranging accomplishments in recent years. Working under the National Coalition for Equities' (NCFE) umbrella, our focus has been on advocating for a strong community voice among federal and state regulators and major private sector corporations. We've dedicated ourselves to addressing public policy issues, particularly those related to wealth and income inequality impacting affordable homeownership and small business growth.

Through collaborative efforts with NCFE, HPP CARES CDE has expanded outreach initiatives, leading to increased corporate social responsibility and consumer protection awareness. Our endeavors have enabled us to engage with a broader audience, forge partnerships with numerous companies, and engage with regulators, all with the goal of supporting deserving individuals in achieving sustainable homeownership, fostering successful small businesses, protecting consumers, and empowering California communities.

At HPP CARES CDE, we are committed to championing opportunities for people of color to become integral partners in our mission to reduce income and wealth inequality, thereby contributing to the creation of stronger futures for all minority groups.
