Grant Support for Homeward Bound of Marin

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 5/22/2018

Preview

The Board will hear a request from the Community Development Agency (CDA) to approve a $200,000 grant from the Marin County in-lieu Housing Trust Fund to Homeward Bound of Marin for the rehabilitation of property at 127 King Street in Larkspur. Homeward Bound is converting a former convent to affordable rental homes for 12 older adults coming out of homelessness and has negotiated a 35-year lease for the property. The nonprofit operates 16 emergency shelters and supportive housing programs in Marin. The project aligns with the Board's 2018 goal to prioritize the Housing First model for people experiencing homelessness. 

Review

The Board approved the grant and authorized the Board President to execute the agreement.
