SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego County will apply for $12 million in state funding to provide housing for people experiencing homelessness with mental illnesses, it was announced Wednesday.
The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to apply for No Place Like Home support, with that money available as soon as this spring for mentally ill individuals experiencing homelessness or those at risk for becoming homeless.
Under the No Place Like Home program's noncompetitive category, the county previously received a one-time amount of $12.7 million, followed by a $68 million under a competitive process.
