Board Approves Supervisor Fletcher’s Proposal for a Flexible Funds for Housing Program (Flex Pool)

11/19/19

“The homeless crisis facing San Diego requires us to be not only creative and innovative in seeking solutions, but collaborative, cities and counties working together with nonprofits and the private sector. Today’s action puts us on a path forward to a Flexible Funds for Housing Program that will give us the latitude to leverage existing state, federal and private resources to help tackle housing instability in our region. The Board of Supervisors’ vote to support identifying interventions and a feasibility study for flexible funds for housing is another example of how the County is working to address the homeless crisis in our region. When combined with the significant funding we put towards affordable housing earlier this year, and our substantial commitment to fund behavioral health programs, it’s evident the County is moving to invest its resources in some of our most vulnerable communities.”     

Nathan Fletcher
Supervisor, District 4, County of San Diego
Vice Chair, Regional Task Force on the Homeless San Diego
Member, Governor’s Council of Regional Homeless Advisors
