(Funds for Homeless programs)….The funds come from the Homeless Housing Assistance and Prevention Program.
The Program is a $650 million block grant program designed to provide one-time grant funds to support regional coordination and expand or develop local capacity to address their immediate homeless challenges. The Imperial County Region HHAP Program allocations are just over $1.6 million for Imperial Valley Continuum of Care. The County was allocated over $1.5 million. The County is redirecting its allocation to IV Continuum of Care, for a total of over $2.8 million. The funds will be used for Homeless Housing solutions, activities for homeless youth, implementation of a homeless strategic plan, and administrative costs. The funds will be granted through the RFP process. All funds must be expended by June 30, 2025.
