The Homeless Housing, Assistance, and Prevention Program (HHAP) is a $650 million block grant program designed to provide jurisdictions with one-time grant funds to support regional coordination and expand or develop local capacity to address their immediate homelessness challenges informed by a best- practices framework focused on moving homeless individuals and families into permanent housing and supporting the efforts of those individuals and families to maintain their permanent housing. The HHAP grant program is authorized by AB101, which was signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsom on July 31, 2019.
The State of California's Homeless Coordinating and Financing Council (HCFC) released a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for HHAP grant funding on December 6, 2019. The full NOFA can be found on the HCFC website.
In Yolo County, HHAP funds are allocated in two separate allocations to the County and the CoC. In Yolo County, the Homeless and Poverty Action Coalition (HPAC) is responsible for providing a local competition to determine which projects will be funded. On April 21, 2020, HPAC adopted the FY 2020/21 HHAP Notice of Funding, Local Competition Timeline, and Project Selection Timeline with information regarding the local CoC funding opportunity. The complete HHAP Local Competition Timeline and Local Selection Process solicits proposals for projects under the CoC allocation and details instructions for proposal submissions.
A mandatory Notice of Intent is due by 5pm on Friday, May 8, 2020 for providers interested in applying for these funds.
