The San Diego Housing Commission’s (SDHC) homelessness action plan, HOUSING FIRST – SAN DIEGO: 2018-2020, will create permanent housing opportunities for 3,000 homeless individuals and families in the City of San Diego over the next three fiscal years.
HOUSING FIRST – SAN DIEGO: 2018-2020 directs $79.7 million in federal, City of San Diego, and SDHC resources into six programs:
SDHC Moving Home Rapid Rehousing
Landlord Engagement and Assistance Program (LEAP)
Homelessness Prevention & Diversion
New Permanent Supportive Housing
SDHC Moving On Rental Assistance
The City of San Diego can create enough additional housing to meet its need for 150,000 – 220,000 housing units over the next 10 years if the majority of the proposals in a new San Diego Housing Commission (SDHC) report are implemented.
SDHC developed the report, Addressing the Housing Affordability Crisis: San Diego Housing Production Objectives 2018-2028, in collaboration with City Councilmembers Scott Sherman and David Alvarez, Chair and Vice Chair, respectively, of the City Council’s Smart Growth & Land Use Committee.
SDHC’s report provides important data that will help the City of San Diego establish realistic and achievable housing goals.
