For General Program Questions
The PIP Program is intended to increase participation in HCD’s Prohousing Designation Program by pairing the designation with an impactful award grant.

HCD will award PIP funds to eligible jurisdictions with Prohousing Designation, with additional bonus dollars available based on a jurisdiction’s Prohousing Designation Program application score.
