SACRAMENTO – The following statement was made by California State Association of Counties (CSAC) Executive Director Graham Knaus regarding homelessness funding and housing penalties in the 2019-2020 budget.
“California’s counties are the front line providers in our communities. Homelessness knows no boundaries and progress can only occur through collaboration. Counties are appreciative of the direct funding provided in the budget as it will be critical to addressing homelessness. On housing, we find the new penalties on local governments already struggling to add housing and address homelessness concerning. Nonetheless, California’s 58 counties stand ready and committed to meet this challenge.”
