Homeless Housing, Assistance, and Prevention Program
In 2019-20, the state is making a one-time investment of $650 million to address homelessness through the Homeless Housing, Assistance, and Prevention Program (HHAPP). Of this $650 million, at least eight percent ($52 million) is required to be dedicated to addressing homelessness among youth.
This follows California’s $500 million one-time investment in addressing homelessness in the 2018-19 budget through the Homeless Emergency Aid Program (HEAP), of which at least five percent was required to be dedicated to youth homelessness. The $650 million in HHAPP funding will be allocated to local Continuums of Care, counties, and cities.
