CHAIR FLETCHER & BOARD OF SUPERVISORS SECURES $12M FROM U.S. HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT TO KEEP PEOPLE HOUSED

04/05/22

 

Chair Nathan Fletcher and members of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors today voted to receive nearly $12 million from U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to support individuals at risk of or are unsheltered with homelessness prevention. Chair Fletcher released the following statement after the vote:

“We are leveraging every resource available to keep people in their homes, and get people who are already on the street off of them,” said Chair Fletcher. “It is anticipated these funds will help develop at least 100 permanent housing units by working with existing projects to make more units within them affordable-rate housing. Today we took another step in the right direction when it comes to tackling the housing and homelessness crises in our County.”   

On March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) was signed into law. As a result of ARPA funding, HUD has allocated funding to local jurisdictions for the HOME Investment Partnership program. HUD has added the suffix ARP (representing American Rescue Plan) to distinguish these additional funds. On April 8, 2021, HUD announced an allocation to the County of $11,891,028 in HOME-ARP funds. To receive HOME-ARP funds, the County is required to approve a HOME-ARP Cost Allocation Plan, which identifies needs and funding priorities and submit it to HUD as an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2021-22 Annual Plan.
