For the first time, just over $10 million dollars in state funding has been awarded to agencies and cities that help the homeless individuals and families in Riverside County. In issuing the funding, the state required the county to use the existing Continuum of Care structure created by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to manage federal grants for homeless programs.
Efforts to further examine and tighten county fiscal practices, along with recommendations that could save millions each year based on new a criminal-justice system report, will be crucial in solving a deficit in next year’s budget that could approach $100 million. Those topics and other budget issues are expected be discussed at Tuesday’s (3/29) Board of Supervisors meeting.
