California plans to allocate $71 million towards housing programs

California’s Department of Housing and Community Development recently announced in a news release that a total of $71 million will be distributed across 52 counties in California to combat the ongoing cost-of-living crisis.

Of this amount, approximately $56 million will be allocated to three Transitional Age Youth programs aimed at providing stable housing and essential services to individuals under 25 years old.

The remaining $15 million will be distributed among eight communities with the objective of identifying scalable solutions to address and ultimately eliminate family homelessness statewide.

Governor Gavin Newsom emphasized the significance of these grants, stating, “These grants are crucial for connecting some of California’s most vulnerable individuals with housing opportunities. Many of these young adults lack the support networks that most of us take for granted.”
