Supervisors Holding Special Meeting On Homeless Funding

The Shasta County Board of Supervisors will hold a special meeting Tuesday in response to a sudden decision by Governor Newsom to withhold distribution of homeless housing assistance funds. For Shasta County it represented more than $1.1 Million, as well as the county’s share of the $2 Million handled by the multi-county Continuum of Care Cooperative. The Governor withheld the funding statewide, saying that the programs the money supported did not make sufficient progress in addressing the needs of the homeless. After meeting with many city and county leaders on Friday, the Governor capitulated and allowed the release of the funds, but warned that in order not to endanger the funding in the future, local governments need to get more creative in developing effective programs.
