CSAC, League of Cities Release Joint Homelessness Task Force Report

This week, the California State Association of Counties (CSAC) and the League of California Cities (League) Joint Homelessness Task Force released a report detailing the status of homelessness in California and tools and resources available to cities and counties to address the growing issue throughout the state.

Last year, CSAC and the League formed a joint task force to explore options to addressing homelessness in California and met several times over the course of the year. The task force heard from a wide variety of state and local leaders, nonprofit organization, and other stakeholder entities about the causes and solutions to the homelessness crisis. The report is intended to be a toolkit for local governments to help them identify programs, initiatives, partnerships, and funding sources to assist in reducing homelessness.

The CSAC-League Joint Homelessness Task Force Report is available here.

A webinar will be held on Wednesday, March 7 to discuss the report and highlight several innovative programs local governments are implementing to address homelessness. Additional webinar information and registration are available here. Two full-day workshops are also being planned on this topic, and dates and locations will be announced in the coming weeks.
