The City of Arcadia applied for and has been awarded three grants from the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (“SGVCOG”) to address homelessness in the City, including the Homeless Plan Implementation Grant, Homeless Prevention and Diversion Program Grant, and Pilot Program Grant. These grants total $380,000.
The Homeless Plan Implementation Grant includes encampment clean up, First Responder outreach, emergency resources, a full time Housing Navigator, and administrative costs. The Prevention and Diversion Program Grant is in partnership with City of La Cañada-Flintridge and will provide resources to prevent individuals from falling into homelessness or minimizing the amount of time clients face homelessness and will be distributed by Union Station Homeless Services (“USHS”). The Pilot Program Grant includes a Homelessness Resource Hub (“HRH”), which operates at the Par 3 Golf Course Parking Lot on Thursdays until the conclusion of the grant. The HRH will provide free showers, laundry facilities, resources, and onsite case management.
