Community Action Partnership

Solano County Strategic Planning Effort

In 2016, the CAP Solano JPA led a county-wide, community-based strategic planning effort to create a five-year plan to address homelessness throughout the county. The final plan was approved in March 2017. Neighbors Helping Neighbors: Forward Together, the 5-Year Regional Strategic Plan to Respond to Homelessness in Solano County, is available here and November 2017 update here.

​The 2019 Solano Strategic Plan Addendum has been approved and can be found here

2019 Point-in-Time Count Results

The results of the 2019 Point-in-Time (PIT) count are now available. The PIT Count is an enumeration of persons experiencing homelessness, whether sheltered or unsheltered, on a single night in January. The PIT count is conducted at least biannually in Solano and is a requirement to receive homeless assistance funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The PIT Count uses HUD’s definition of homelessness, which includes persons living in shelters and places not meant for human habitation, but excludes persons who are living doubled up with others due to economic hardship or those living in RV or trailer parks.

For a summary of the PIT Count methodology and results, please view the press release here.

The full PIT Count Report can be found here, and an executive summary can be found here.

2020-2021 Community Action Plan

As the Community Action Agency for Housing First Solano, the CAP Solano JPA has prepared a 2020-2021 

Community Action Plan in compliance with the Community Services Block Grant Program under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.  The 2020-2021 Community Plan identifies top causes for poverty in Solano County and explains the JPA's strategies for addressing those needs.
