According to the Antelope Valley Times, February 11, 2022, the city of Lancaster was awarded $24.6 million from the Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) program via the California Strategic Growth Council to support housing and infrastructure improvements in the downtown area. It is the first time an AHSC grant has ever been awarded in the Antelope Valley area, city officials said. The funds will be used to support 114 units of income-targeted housing in the Lancaster’s downtown area, improved bike and pedestrian infrastructure, upgrades for the commuter rail, and the development of an independent microgrid. The 114 housing units will be constructed by Bridge Housing Corporation through a partnership with the Housing Authority, and the bulk of the units will be allocated to residents at a targeted income level.
