SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY – The State of California has awarded over $12 million to the 13th Assembly District in the fourth round of Homeless Housing, Assistance and Prevention (HHAP) grants.
“I’m thrilled to see this investment coming into our historically underserved community,” said Assemblymember Carlos Villapudua (D-Stockton). “We have been grappling with a housing and homelessness crisis for years now. This incoming support at the State level will set more families and individuals up for success, and pay dividends down the line for our region’s overall wellbeing.”
The City of Stockton received $6,196,518 in this fourth round of grants. San Joaquin County received $5,974,760.
HHAP grants are awarded based on objective, measurable progress grantees propose to achieve over the next two years through their Local Homeless Action Plan. Grantees also agree to pursue more robust goals and apply best practices to advance the state’s collective efforts to prevent and end homelessness.
