Agenda Items #7 and #8: The Board will hear two requests from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regarding Project Homekey to provide permanent supportive housing in Marin. First, the Board will hear a request to adopt a resolution authorizing it to apply for and, if awarded, accept competitive Project Homekey funding. The California Department of Housing and Community Development has issued hundreds of millions of dollars statewide to rapidly expand housing for people experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness and are impacted by COVID-19. In a separate item, the Board will hear a request to authorize the Board President to execute a first addendum to an agreement with Episcopal Community Services (ECS), increasing the contract by $1,036,300 for a total contract not to exceed $1,085,300, for predevelopment funding for a Project Homekey developments. The County selected the San Francisco organization as a development sponsor after a request for proposals was circulated. The County intends to apply for Homekey funding for up to two properties in partnership with ECS; one of which is the 1251 S. Eliseo property in Larkspur and the other is yet to be determined.
The Board approved both actions regarding Project Homekey.
