The State of California recently launched Project Homekey as the State’s next phase of response to protect Californians experiencing homeless from COVID-19. This effort leverages $600 million in CARES Act funding to support counties in acquiring and renovating properties to convert them into service-enriched housing units. As a part of this effort, the State joined with private partners to establish a Services Subsidy Fund that is providing funding to support operating costs for services and wraparound service supports for new state-acquired housing units. Join us to learn more about the Project Homekey initiative and its progress to-date, hear learnings from key partners, and what roles philanthropy can play to support Project Homekey and other projects that are in the pipeline.
