The Supportive Housing Program (SHP) is a federal grant program authorized by the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act of 1987. It was designed as part of the Continuum of Care strategy, to promote the development of housing and supportive services to assist homeless persons in the transition from streets and shelters to permanent housing and maximum self-sufficiency.
Each year the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announces its competitive homeless assistance programs including SHP. The Department of Housing and Community Development supports the activities of the Regional Continuum of Care Council (RCCC) by providing regional leadership in the coordination of the federal SHP application.
The RCCC is a large cooperative community group consisting of representatives of the 18 cities within the county, nonprofit service providers and other interested parties. The RCCC meets on a monthly basis to identify gaps in homeless services, establish funding priorities, and to pursue an overall systemic approach to addressing homelessness.
The Regional Continuum of Care Council (RCCC) is a community-based forum focused on homelessness in the San Diego region. Agendas and minutes are prepared by members of the RCCC and are not intended to represent the opinion of the County of San Diego.
RCCC Members and Stakeholders: The attached document contains information for Steering Committee nominations for 2013-2014.
In anticipation of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development issuance of a Notice of Funding Availability for Continuum of Care funds that may be released in the next few weeks, the San Diego City and County Continuum of Care requested that agencies provide an advance notice of an intent to submit applications for new projects or for reallocations for existing projects. The level of funding that may become available is not known at this time. It was recommended that non-profit and governmental agencies consider the potential for scaling projects to match available funding. Please see the Renewal Evaluation Overview and Tool Instructions and the Renewal Scoring Tool below.
