RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Health Services Director, or designee, to execute on behalf of the County Grant Agreement #29-810-1 (CA1548L9T051701) with the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), for McKinney-Vento Act funds, to pay County an amount not to exceed $666,691, for the provision of the County’s Coordinated Entry System (CES), as part of Continuum of Care (CoC) serving homeless adults and transition-age youth, for the period from October 1, 2018 through September 30, 2019.

FISCAL IMPACT:

Approval of this award will result in an amount not to exceed $666,691, payable to the County from HUD McKinney-Vento Act funds for County’s Continuum of Care Project, with a required 25% match of $166,673 provided by County and appropriated in the budget.









BACKGROUND:

Contra Costa County's CoC, through its Inter-jurisdictional Council on Homelessness was awarded funds for the CES project. The County's CES project has achieved successes in key strategies from the 2014 Strategic Plan Update, including implementation of a CES to stream line access to housing and services, addressing barriers and getting the right resources to the right people at the right time, serving all homeless clients throughout the County, and providing supportive services such as case management, housing navigation and housing location services, homelessness prevention and diversion counseling and outreach team staff.  
  
On July 11, 2017, the Board of Supervisors approved Contract #29-810 with the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), for McKinney-Vento Act funds, to pay County an amount not to exceed $666,691 for the expansion of the County’s CES for the period from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018.  
  
Approval of Grant Agreement #29-810-1 will allow the County to receive funding for the provision of the CES through September 30, 2019.

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

If this award is not accepted, the County will not receive funding for the CES project, which will result in fewer supportive services for homeless individuals and families and put their well-being and safety at risk.
