Supervisors OK $10M in Grants for Cities, Youth to Address Homelessness
The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 4-0 Tuesday in favor of $10 million in one-time grants to help cities combat homelessness, and for accessing a state program to help homeless youth.
Money for the grants comes from the county budget, while the state of California funds the Homeless, Housing, Assistance and Prevention program.
Board Chairman Nathan Fletcher said Tuesday’s action “is a continuation of our commitment to work with other regional leaders to make progress on the most pressing issues our community is facing. We’re in the fight, and we’re not backing down.”
Grants can be used to turn properties into shelters, safe parking or camping spots, or tiny homes.
