Sacramento Region Awarded $30.5 Million to Address Homelessness 

On March 28th, 2023, the US Department of Housing and Community Development (HUD) announced the Sacramento City & County Continuum of Care (CoC) has been awarded $30.5 million to fund 36 projects designed to move individuals and families experiencing homelessness into permanent housing with access to supportive services, and to help them achieve long-term stability. The FY2022 award amount represents a 2.7% increase over the FY2021 award amount of $29.7 million. 


The majority of the 36 awards renew and sustain existing permanent housing projects. Combined, these critical funds will continue finance for individuals and families experiencing homelessness. Out of the 36 awards, 32 renew various homelessness services programs. Combined,. these crit ical funds will continue to finance 2,508 renewal beds and add 156 new beds to the homelessness response system.  


The Sacramento CoC’s renewal projects are almost entirely PSH projects, where participants receive ongoing rental subsidies and voluntary supportive services with no time limit. The CoC funds several RRH projects targeted to transition age youth and survivors of domestic violence. 

Sacramento’s new projects include: 

  1. Northview Pointe PSH- a site-based project with behavioral health supports for 66 single adults (Recipient: Hope Cooperative). 
  2. Cornerstone Blvd. PSH- a site-based project with supportive services for 33 single adults (Recipient: SSF; Subrecipient: Lutheran Social Services). 
  3. Achieving Change Together (Expansion) PSH- a project with supportive services for 17 single adults (Recipient: SSF; Subrecipient Lutheran Social Services). 
  4. Esperanza DV RRH 2- housing location and short to medium term rental assistance project with supportive services for 15 families (40 beds) who are survivors of domestic violence (Recipient: Shelter Inc). 

The Sacramento CoC lost two renewal projects in the FY2022 competition: 

  1. Shared Community PSH- a shared housing PSH project serving 50 adult-only households in approximately 13 large rental homes in Sacramento (Recipient: SSF; Subrecipient: Sacramento Self Help Housing).  
  2. Shasta Hotel PSH- funds providing supportive services to 18 residents of a Single Room Occupancy Hotel (Recipient: SHRA). 

Participants in these projects will be prioritized by the CoC’s Coordinated Entry System and other housing options, to avoid returns to homelessness for residents.  

This HUD award also supports CoC planning activities and the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). CoC planning activities include efforts to reduce racial disparities, support the meaningful engagement of people with lived experience of homelessness in decision-making. and HMIS is used to collect client-level data on housing services and uses the data in a variety of ways, including evaluating project performance, providing insights to shape future actions, and for the preparation of federal reporting.     

Congratulations to the awarded projects and thank you for continuing to serve our community’ The Sacramento County awards can be found on page 5 and 6 of the report below.
