There was a sold out crowd present this past week for the CSH-sponsored San Diego Housing Federation Roundtable – Opening New Doors: Supportive Housing Capital, Operating and Services Resources.
Participants heard the latest information about resources needed to successfully develop and operate quality supportive housing.
Dr. Piedad Garcia of County Behavioral Health Services provided updates on the process of adding $10 million to the MHSA Housing Program, along with how developers can express interest in this new funding. Megan O’Dowd of County Housing and Community Development discussed the County housing initiatives to create new supportive housing and opportunities that are emerging through the North County 25 Cities efforts. Simonne Ruff of CSH touched on emerging prospects such as the National Housing Trust Fund; potential service supports available through the 1115 Waiver; and the latest information on Health Homes.
