STAKEHOLDER AND COMMUNITY SURVEY
The Community Action Partnership Solano, Joint Powers Authority is soliciting feedback for its two-year Community Action Plan to alleviate poverty in Solano County. To ensure this plan is responsive to the true needs of our community, we need to hear directly from as many stakeholders as possible.

Please help us by completing this 
survey by March 29th! 
Please also share with providers, agencies, and organizations in the County.
If you prefer to fill out or share a paper version of the survey, a PDF is available to download
 here.
Please contact solano@homebaseccc.org if a survey translated into Spanish is needed.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​POINT-IN-TIME COUNT

  • The Housing First Solano Continuum of Care (CoC) has decided to utilize a COVID-19-related waiver being offered by HUD to postpone the Point-in Time (PIT) Count to 2022 in order to protect the health and safety of all those involved. No federal or state homeless assistance funding will be in jeopardy as a result of this decision and most Bay Area CoCs have also postponed their PIT Counts. To learn more about how to get involved in the 2022 PIT Count, please visit the volunteer registration portal.

​​

Pursuant to Executive Order N-29-20, all future CAP Solano JPA and TAB meetings will be held via video or teleconferencing until further notice. Meeting login information will be distributed with the meeting notice. To receive announcements about the CAP Solano JPA, please join the mailing list.​​​
