San Luis Obispo County declares homeless shelter crisis

Posted at 5:00 PM, Nov 06, 2018

The San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors has declared a homeless shelter crisis.

The declaration means that the county is now eligible for up to $4.8 million in grant funding to help address homelessness.

Many cities in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties have already declared a shelter crisis in their communities to try to get some of the $500 million in state money available under the Homeless Shelter Emergency Aid Program.

The Paso Robles City Council will also consider declaring a crisis at Tuesday night’s meeting.

The public can provide input on how San Luis Obispo County should spend the funds via an online survey.
