Dear Valley News Readers,
I’m thrilled to inform you that Riverside County has been awarded a $12 million grant to address homelessness.
This grant from the State of California’s Encampment Resolution Funding (ERF) Program will help us to significantly aid the cities of San Jacinto and Hemet. By partnering with both Cities, our combined efforts will provide a commitment to ensuring stability, support, and prosperity.
This grant is the second largest received in the state of California. The combined effort reflects the trust and support we have gained in our relentless efforts to make a difference. As your County Supervisor, I am determined to use these funds to ensure housing, enhanced street outreach, and essential wrap-around services.
In the upcoming weeks, I will be engaging in discussions with our partnering nonprofits and cities: San Jacinto and Hemet to develop an effective and community-oriented plan for this grant. Your insights and feedback are not just welcome, but they are vital in this process.
In conclusion, this is a significant step forward in our ongoing strategies to address homelessness and ensure a bright, secure, and prosperous future for all.
Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting development where together, we will “Thrive in District 5.”
