Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a third round of funding for Project Homekey on Monday. The state is dedicating $137 million for housing people who are facing homelessness. The money will go towards 19 projects throughout the state.
Of note, Tehama County will get more than $2 million to acquire a property on a working farm. This will preserve 10 housing units and add six more. The farm, which is the only one participating in the program, will also provide job training, according to the governor’s office.
In all, the state has a pot of $600 million to spend on the housing projects. Newsom is requesting the Legislature approve an additional $200 million.
