Each year, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provides nearly $2.2 billion in funding for programs designed to end homelessness across the United States. This funding is issued through a competitive process known formally as the Continuum of Care Competition.


The Continuum of Care Competition is a complex and involved process lasting approximately two months. Communities must rank individual projects for funding based on local priorities as well as complete a 60-page application outlining how the community is combating homelessness.


The CAP Solano JPA provides the staff personnel and administrative funding required to complete this massive undertaking. As a result, the CAP Solano JPA secures over $1.2 million in funding annually to serve persons experiencing homelessness in Solano County.


2017 Continuum of Care Funding Award

On January 11, 2018, HUD announced the final awards for the FY2017 CoC funding competition. This year's competition was very competitive locally and nationally. However, Housing First Solano secured a total of $1,284,935 for use within Solano County, which was awarded for 16 projects! Congratulations! The award renewed 12 projects and funded 3 new projects. This includes 13 permanent housing projects (2 new ones), renewal of our coordinated entry project funding, and a new coordinated entry expansion.

In addition to the project funding, HUD awarded $36,956 in planning grant funding which supports Housing First Solano’s organizing efforts.

The full awards list can be found here.  HUD's official announcement is here.

Thank you to all the individuals and agencies that partnered with us to submit a strong application and who undertake the important work of effectively serving and housing homeless people year-round. We know this process can be long and arduous, and we appreciate your contributions and your dedication to serving the homeless in Solano County. Congratulations to all!



2016 Continuum of Care Funding Award

On December 20, 2016, HUD announced the awards for the FY2016 CoC funding competition. Housing First Solano submitted an application for 17 projects and a planning grant, for a total of $1,318,782. HUD awarded funds for 16 projects and the planning grant for a total of $1,288,063.

This award includes one new project: Restoration Project. This project will be supported by the City of Fairfield and operated by the Edge Community Church. Housing First Solano is excited to add a new provider to the HUD funding stream and looks forward to supporting them as they build a new project.

It also includes 15 renewal projects, all of which are permanent supportive housing for Solano's homeless individuals and families. 

Like in 2015, this year's competition was very competitive and unfortunately HUD did not choose to fund the expansion of Coordinated Entry. Housing First Solano is disappointed in this result but is confident that the existing Coordinated Entry grant is sufficient to build a robust coordinated entry system in 2017.

Thank you to the Housing First Solano CoC Board, led by Tranine Chisom, whose knowledge and convening authority saw us through the assembly of our application, and to the CAP Solano JPA, led by Dawn La Bar, whose leadership and dedication enabled the JPA to submit the final application to HUD on behalf of our community.  

And thank you to all of you who partnered with Housing First Solano to submit a strong application and who undertake the important work of effectively serving and housing homeless people year-round.
