BACKGROUND:
On July 1, 2016, the state of California approved a bond measure to fund $2 billion over a four-year period to create the No Place Like Home (NPLH) program. NPLH seeks to address the unmet need of the homeless population with severe mental illness, including adults, older adults, children, and transitional aged youth. Voters approved the bond measure, Proposition 2, on November 8, 2018. The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) issued a notice of funding availability and issued its second installment of NPLH funds on September 27, 2019 for $622 million. Approximately $178 million of this amount is available through the HCD Competitive Allocation. The remaining $444 million (including possible advances of Round 3 funds) is available under the Alternative Process County Allocations. Competitive applications are due on January 8, 2020.
