Grant Money for Community-Based Transitional Housing Webinar Scheduled for March 2

February 10, 2017
The League of California Cities® and the Department of Finance (DOF) will host a webinar to inform cities of a grant opportunity for siting Community-Based Transitional Housing.
 
Registration is now open for this free, one-hour webinar scheduled for Thursday, March 2.

Background on Community-Based Transitional Housing Program
 
Cities and counties are eligible for grants under the new Community-Based Transitional Housing Program. Established by SB 837 in June 2016, the program provides $25 million in grants for cities or counties that agree to site transitional housing connected with support services for recently released offenders. Individual grants can be up to $2 million, depending on the size of the facility, and priorities will be provided for applications with local matching contributions.
 
To ensure that cities are fully aware of this program and have a chance to consider taking advantage of it, we are hosting a webinar to enable DOF to explain the program in greater detail, and be available to answer your questions.
 
DOF’s FAQ’s for the Community Based Transitional Housing grant program has additional information.
 
Applications will be accepted on a first come basis over a two-year period that begins Oct. 1, 2016. DOF will stop accepting applications when the $25 million appropriation is fully awarded even if that occurs prior to Oct. 1, 2018. The application is available on DOF’s website.
 
Webinar Details
 
Thursday, March 2, 1–2 p.m.

Typically, League webinars only allow one connection per city but due to capacity, each member city can have two connections to make it easier to participate. The webinar is free for members and League partners. Non-member cities will be charged $100.
