City Applies for Grant Funding for Affordable Housing & Transportation

The City Council agreed to resubmit a joint application under the Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities Notice of Funding Availability that would bring in millions of dollars for several projects in Culver City. If the grant is awarded, it would amount to $35 million for construction of the Jubilo Village affordable housing project located at 4464 Sepulveda Boulevard in Culver City, and $14 million for City Bicycle, Pedestrian and Transmit Infrastructure.

The housing project will be a 100 percent affordable housing development that will provide 95 affordable one, two and three-bedroom apartments to at-risk and low-income households. The development will be service-enriched and provide onsite supportive services through a partnership with Upward Bound House, a Culver City local emergency shelter for homeless children and their families.

The City Council modified the grant application to propose seeking $4 million for various new bicycle lanes within a 1-mile radius of the project which will not adversely affect the current availability of parking or traffic lanes.

For the pedestrian project, approximately $1.5 million, would have numerous enhancements within the 1-mile radius of the aforementioned housing project, including: sidewalk repairs, upgrading curb ramps to ADA standards, installing high visibility crosswalk markings, and upgrading pedestrian push buttons at signalized intersections to be fully accessible. The grant application includes a proposal for a new sidewalk around the southern perimeter of Lindberg Park, which could be built from concrete or decomposed granite.

The transit project, approximately for $8.5 million, would see improvements for Culver CityBus Line 6 and Rapid 6 which serve Sepulveda Boulevard between UCLA and LAX.

Mayor Yasmine-Imani McMorrin, Vice Mayor Dan O’Brien, and Council Member Freddy Puza voted in favor. Council Members Albert Vera Jr. and Goran Eriksson abstained from the vote. The application deadline is March 19th and awards will be announced August 2024.
