Governor Newsom Signs Historic Housing and Homelessness Funding Package as Part of $100 Billion California Comeback Plan 

Sebastopol, CA...At a Homekey site in Sebastopol, Governor Gavin Newsom signed the largest funding and reform package for housing and homelessness in California history as part of the $100 billion California Comeback Plan. The package includes $10.3 billion for affordable housing and $12 billion over two years towards tackling the homelessness crisis head-on – helping tens of thousands of people off the streets while also demanding greater accountability and more urgency from local governments.

The new homelessness funding includes $5.8 billion to add 42,000 new housing units through Homekey – a national model for homeless housing. $3 billion of this investment is dedicated to housing for people with the most acute behavioral and physical health needs. Governor Newsom’s investment is the biggest expansion in decades in terms of clinically enhanced behavioral health housing in California.

“I don’t think homelessness can be solved – I know homelessness can be solved,” said Governor Newsom. “We are going all-in with innovative solutions that we know work – with a focus on creating housing to support people with severe mental health challenges, and with more money than ever to move people out of encampments and into safer situations. With record investments tied to strong accountability and efficiency measures, California will continue to build on the groundbreaking success of Homekey, changing the lives of tens of thousands of Californians for the better and supporting communities across the state.”

The legislation signed today, AB 140, also includes $2 billion in aid to counties, large cities and Continuums of Care through the Homeless Housing, Assistance and Prevention grant program (HHAP). To qualify, recipients must follow strict accountability measures and submit a local homelessness action plan that includes quantifiable, data-driven goals that jurisdictions must commit to meeting.

$10.3 Billion Affordable Housing Package
  • $850 million incentivizing infill development and smart growth
  • $800 million to preserve the state’s affordable housing stock
  • $100 million promoting affordable homeownership
  • Additional funding to scale up the state’s efforts to create more Accessory Dwelling Units, build more housing on state-owned excess land and invest in farmworker housing
$12 Billion Over Two Years to Confront Homelessness Crisis
  • $5.8 billion for Homekey over two years, creating more than 42,000 new homeless housing units
    • $2.75 billion for the Department of Housing and Community Development
    • $3 billion for the Health and Human Services Agency to create clinically enriched behavioral health housing and funding for the renovation and acquisition of Board and Care Facilities and Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly.
  • $2 billion in HHAP grants over two years with strong, new accountability requirements for local governments
  • $1.75 billion to unlock up to 7,200 units of housing in the pipeline for extremely low-income families and people exiting homelessness
  • $150 million to stabilize participants in Project Roomkey hotels
  • $50.6 million for encampment resolution efforts
  • $45 million for services and housing for homeless veterans
In addition to these investments addressing homelessness and housing affordability, the California Comeback Plan includes $1.1 billion to clean up the streets of California by partnering with local governments to pick up trash and beautify downtowns, freeways and neighborhoods across California. The program is expected to generate up to 11,000 jobs over three years.

Governor Newsom’s California Comeback Plan seizes this once-in-a-lifetime moment to address long-standing challenges by taking on threats to our state’s future and ensuring every California family – regardless of their race or zip code – can thrive.

        That's not Florida's Governor Ron DeSantis, that's our Governor Newsom, the guy who got caught again banging one of the ladies in his office. Guys a real dick to be cheating on his faithful wife, mother to his four kids and he's been caught FUKING other women. Makes you wonder how many others that he did and wasn't caught? So that's the kind of guy you love huh?

Amazing what a recall campaign will do to a hypocrite when it comes doesn't it? All of a sudden the guy who can't stay faithful to his wife is spending money to handle the homeless problem. What's next, to pat law enforcement officers on the back and say good job? Or maybe to keep violent criminals in prison where they belong instead of unleashing them on real, legal,US citizens and actual tax payers?
Biden and his Cult are very disappointed in the people who still haven't been vaccinated, and of course being socialist democraps are blaming everyone on the right because of it. IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, AND I DO, I REMEMBER BOTH BIDEN AND HARRIS SAYING THAT IF THERE COMES A VACCINE DURING THE TRUMP AFMINISTRATION THEY WOULD NOT TRUST THE VACCINE, AND THEY WOULD NOT TAKE THE VACCINE. Of course both Hypocrites did get the vaccine, Biden, our Dementia patient and Dictator even claimed we didn't have a covid-19 vaccine before he took office, I swear to GOD he did, even though he had his first shot on December 21st, 2020, and his second shot in January. And still his cult members too dense to even remember the mumbling, rambling of a senile mentally challenged weakest, oldest brain dead president ever elected. Here's that site to confirm your ignorance on that too.
https://news.yahoo.com/biden-claims-didn-t-covid-131245718.html

SO MAYBE THE HYPOCRITES SHOULD BE BLAMING THEMSELVES FOR A CHANGE INSTEAD OF THEIR USUAL POINTING THEIR FINGERS AT EVERYONE ELSE AND SAYING ITS THEIR FAULT...AND THEIR FAULT....AND THOSE PEOPLE OVER THERE? ITS THEIR FAULT AND THEIR KIDS FAULT...OH YEAH, ITS THEIR PETS FAULT TOO. Or just maybe it's also the idiots of the left, you know, like the ones who want to Defund The Police, and when violent crimes rise 200, 400 or 700 percent from the previous year they, like AOC say it's just hysteria....the same AOC who says, I was almost killed by the rioters and they were not in sight from where she was.
Those socialist politicians who left Texas to avoid doing their job, getting on a private chartered flight to DC? Not only did they break the law when they brought their own alcohol on board, those hypocrites also broke the law for not wearing mask on board. Then ended up infecting others in DC including the VP office ( like there's not enough infections coming from her) and infecting the office of the speaker of the house. Imagine how the news media would report that if those were Republicans? No doubt the media would of called it an insurrection by pandemic trying to kill the VP and the speaker of the house.
Anyway, just reporting actual, factual news that a left media would never report, and no one on the left would even watch, unless of course cartoons we're going to be on, like on the Cartoon National Network.

Not enough done about the dangerous mentally ill
Posted on: 2021-07-20 15:38:50   By: Anonymous
 
Let's be clear here...The hotels and motels are full of these so called homeless. The people left on the streets are dangerously mentally ill. They do not get along with others and will never follow any authority They will never be able to be housed in anything other than an asylum where they can not leave.

They need to be stopped immediately from blindsiding and preying on the general public who is just going about their day. Nothing else is ever going to be acceptable. Give the people our reasonable amount of safety back in our towns and cities.

            Okay, I see 10 Billion for Affordable Housing, 12 Billion for Homeless, 2 Billion for Cities & Counties and 1 Billion to Clean up Streets, where is the other 75 Billion going? Once again a smoke screen of a bill that only a small percentage of the money goes where they say, and they stand up there and applaud him. Unbelievable, wake up California...
