San Diego County leaders discuss plans for $10M to help cities to create new shelters



Nathan Fletcher, Chair of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, Monday shared details of the Standard Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) the County is ready to execute between the 18 incorporated cities for homeless services, during the Regional Task Force on Homelessness’ Intergovernmental Roundtable Meeting. 

“Our County government is here to support cities as they work to address homelessness in their communities, and this Standard MOA solidifies the County’s commitment to help. I hope all 18 of the incorporated cities partner with us,” said Chair Fletcher. “Later this month, we’ll double down on our commitment by making $10 million in one-time funding available to help cities build new shelters. Knowing in advance this funding will be available, I encourage all cities not to wait but to start getting your plans together now.”  

Chair Fletcher first introduced the idea during the 2022 State of San Diego County when he called on cities to start thinking about their ideas on how to get people off the streets and open homeless support sites.
