Homelessness Programs

The Housing Authority of the City of Napa participates on the Napa County Continuum of Care (COC) Board which includes representatives from various non-profit service providers, Napa County Health and Human Services, Napa City Police Department representatives, and formerly homeless. The COC submits an annual application for funding to the Federal Housing and Urban Development Department (HUD) for funds to fill the needs for housing and supportive services for the homeless in Napa County.

Currently, funding received under the COC include permanent supportive housing and rapid rehousing programs. This includes the Shelter Plus Care Program, operated by the Housing Authority, which provides rental assistance to formerly chronically homeless individuals. Referrals to this program are made through the County which provides supportive services for participants. The program assistance approximately eight very-low income households.
