The City of Santa Cruz is an active participant in the county-wide Housing Action Partnership. :

The City of Santa Cruz will continue to take a lead role in the countywide CoC system, supporting the action-oriented 10 Year Strategic Plan to End Homelessness (10-Year Plan). Using CDBG, Redevelopment Agency, and other funds, the City will pursue the following priority strategies in 2008-2009, which are integral to the county-wide 10-Year Plan. (Note that the same HUD system of outcome measurements described under the Housing Section applies.)

Financial and technical support is provided to meet the transitional housing needs of the City's homeless population. Projects and programs supported include facilities for lodging and support and referral services to aid in the transition to permanent housing. Nonprofit service providers may contact the City's Housing and Community Development division at 831-420-5150 to discuss their projects.
