Homeless Response: $1M to strengthen regional efforts

From The News Guard:

The Lincoln County Homeless Response Advisory Board is entering into a formal agreement forming a regional entity composed of representatives from Lincoln County, the Cities of Depoe Bay, Lincoln City, Newport, Siletz, Toledo, Waldport, and Yachats, and Community Services Consortium.

Lincoln County was awarded $1 million in state funding to operationalize coordinated offices, anchored by city-county partnerships, to strengthen their communities’ homeless response. These pilots are intended leverage and coordinate existing work in the community and identify gaps in partnership with existing service providers.

The funding supplied by the state in the Pilot HB 4123 grant is not for emergency relief, but for an intentional planning process that will lead to systemic regional change.

A website has been launched to serve as the central point of information for the community and Advisory Board members at www.lchab.org

Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of the month from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. Public is invited to attend. Remote access is available.
