To Move People from Encampments into Housing

Governor Newsom announced today that the cities of Oceanside and Carlsbad were successful in their joint grant application, and are one of the 17 areas statewide chosen to receive new funding to help move people out of encampments and into housing. The Oceanside-Carlsbad partnership is set to receive $11,398,466 in order to fund a variety of housing strategies aimed at supporting individuals living in encampments located along State Route 78 (Caltrans right-of-way).

The awards are part of the state’s Encampment Resolution Fund (ERF) grants, which are administered by the California Interagency Council on Homelessness (Cal ICH). Cal ICH will be supporting the success of the new initiative with technical assistance, grounded in evidence-based practices.

Oceanside Mayor Esther Sanchez stated, “Today marks a pivotal moment in our shared mission with the City of Carlsbad to combat homelessness along the SR 78 corridor. This  $11.4M, first-ever encampment-specific grant gives us an opportunity to add to our current resources such as our Homeless Outreach Teams (HOT), Code Enforcement, Oceanside Navigation Center (shelter), bridge housing, affordable housing projects, and soon — Safe Parking — to address service-resistant people, with added intensive case management, mental health support, and even street medicine. With additional professional support personnel, our goal is to reduce the number of homeless individuals by moving them into permanent supportive housing.”

Services and resources to be provided through the grant are designed to comprehensively address the various needs of residents experiencing homelessness in encampments, from immediate basic needs to long-term housing solutions and supportive services. The coordination and integration of these services aims to facilitate clear pathways to housing and expand opportunities for stable and permanent housing, ensuring that all participants receive the support they need to improve their living conditions and overall well-being.
