These activities provide direct services or assistance to homeless persons and families to help them stabilize their housing situations and work to move them into permanent housing. Activities include case management, counseling, special transportation, medical or food assistance, or the provision of employment assistance. Activities address the service components of Objective A4 in the Five-Year Plan and generally serve households with 30% or less of the area median income.
The Commission will utilize funds to assist proposals which strengthen the area's continuum of care for homeless people, and which help homeless individuals or near homeless individuals stabilize their housing situation, or are designed to move homeless individuals to permanent housing.
