$240 Million Available to Resolve Encampments and Get People Into Housing and Shelter

Governor Gavin Newsom announced the availability of $240 million from the Encampment Resolution Fund grant program – part of the $700 million two-year program – to close down encampments and get people into housing and shelter.

California’s Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency will begin accepting applications for ERF grants immediately and will continue to accept them until funding is exhausted, or June 30, 2023, whichever comes first.

Up to $150 million will be prioritized for projects serving people living in encampments on state rights-of-way, such as highways, bridges and other infrastructure.

Applicants are required to include a detailed service delivery plan that demonstrates a clear pathway to housing for individuals residing in encampment, while addressing their immediate health and safety needs.
