California Housing Department Awards $7.9 Million to Counties to Help Young Adults Find Safe, Stable Homes
June 2, 2020
Sacramento, CA —  

The California Department of Housing and Community Development, in partnership with the California Department of Social Services, County Welfare Directors Association of California, and the California Department of Finance, awarded a total of $7.9 million to counties throughout the state from the Transitional Housing Program.

Funded by the Budget Act of 2019, the Transitional Housing Program provides funding to county child welfare agencies across California to help young adults (ages 18 through 25) secure and maintain stable housing, with priority given to those in the foster care and probation systems. Some of the funds will be used for outreach, so agencies can find and serve those within each community who have the most-complex needs.

The Transitional Housing Program will help young adults who are experiencing or at-risk of homelessness overcome some of the barriers they face in finding and maintaining safe homes. “These young adults are California’s future,” said HCD Director Gustavo Velasquez. “Without support, the odds are stacked against them. By connecting them to stable homes, they gain access to opportunity and a chance to thrive, and when our young people thrive, we all win.”
