ADU Grant








CalHFA’s
ADU Grant Program has already created more housing units in California by providing grants of up to $40,000 to reimburse pre-development and non-recurring closing costs associated with the construction of an ADU. Pre-development costs include site prep, architectural designs, permits, soil tests, impact fees, property surveys, and energy reports.

For more information regarding this grant please visit CalHFA's website at https://www.calhfa.ca.gov/adu/index.htm 


Santa Fe Springs ADU Project: Homeowner Handbook

The ADU Homeowner Handbook has been developed as a comprehensive guide for any Santa Fe Springs homeowner interested in building their own ADU. This guide covers the entire process, from ADU 101 all the way through moving in or renting out the ADU. It includes sections on zoning information, budgeting, financing, design, permitting and fees, construction, move-in, and exercises for homeowners.
