Other Housing & Social Services Activities

The City provides some direct funding for homeless services through the Community Investment Partnership and also participates in the Countywide HOME Consortium which provides direct funding for homeless services. The City also works closely with the County Homeless Coordinator, as well as other community stakeholders. 

The City Housing Program also contracts with the County to conduct the annual Point in Time Homeless Census and produces the annual Homeless Census Report that presents information on who is homeless and why, along with a current listing of available homeless and housing resources.
