HEAP & Homeless Shelters

TOWN HALL: Update on Homeless Emergency Aid Program & Potential Locations for Homeless Shelter

The meeting, co-hosted by Monterey County Supervisor Jane Parker, Monterey County Supervisor Mary Adams, Assemblymember Mark Stone, and Community Foundation for Monterey County was held on Wednesday January 16, 2019 at the Community Foundation Monterey County.

The State has approved $12.5 million in Homeless Emergency Aid Program (HEAP) funds for our region. Local projects are beginning to take shape, including a potential homeless shelter to serve the Monterey Peninsula. This Town Hall provided an update about the local HEAP process and timeline, possible homeless shelter locations to serve the Monterey Peninsula, and ideas about how every Peninsula city can support homeless solutions.

The agenda included a panel presentation by local homeless service providers who could apply for HEAP funds to expand shelter beds on the Monterey Peninsula.
