LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — The Lake County Continuum of Care has announced the availability of two grant opportunities through the California Department of Housing and Community Development Emergency Solutions Grant Program.

These Balance of State Emergency Solutions Grant funds are available in two grants:

• a $116,089 Formula Allocation Grant for Rapid Rehousing Programs only, and

• a $116,089 Regional Competition Grant for Emergency Shelter or Rapid Rehousing Programs

Agencies applying must be a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, government agency including housing authority, or a state or federally recognized tribal that serves those struggling with homelessness or at-risk of becoming homeless in Lake County.

Agencies may apply for both grant opportunities; however, the programs must meet the Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD, definition of Rapid Rehousing or Emergency Shelter.

Local applicants must meet the 100% match funding requirements outlined in the ESG NOFA for the full grant allotment: https://www.hcd.ca.gov/grants-funding/active-funding/esg.shtml.

Applicants will apply directly with HCD through the eCivis portal, save the application as a PDF, and email it to the Lake County Continuum of Care administrative entity no later than Aug. 5, 2022.

The Lake County Continuum of Care will review the applications on eCivis and make recommendations to HCD for both grants. Recommended applicants will contract directly with HCD for funding.

In making funding recommendations to HCD, Lake County Continuum of Care shall use a process which is:

• Fair and open and avoids conflicts of interest in project selection, implementation, and the administration of funds;

• Considers selection criteria reasonably consistent with the criteria used by the Department in section 8407;

• Complies with the requirements of sections 8408 and 8409;

• Incorporates reasonable performance standards as set forth in the Action Plan based on HUD requirements and guidance. If the applicant has not implemented the proposed activity or similar activity within the past three years, the Continuum of Care shall work with the funded applicant to ensure it meets reasonable performance standards specified in the Action Plan in the contract year;

• Complies with federal ESG requirements; and

• Considers any other practices promoted or required by HUD.

SACRAMENTO – Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday signed legislation from Sen. Bill Dodd, D-Napa, that will help ensure the conservation of wildlife habitats in California through public-private partnerships with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

“Collaboration is the key to maintaining sustainable hunting lands in California,” said Sen. Dodd, who co-chairs the Legislature’s Outdoor Sporting Caucus. “Many in the outdoor sporting community are the most conservation-minded because they want to pass on to future generations the opportunities they have had. Thanks to Gov. Newsom for signing this new law, which will help ensure the continued conservation of these wild habitats.”

In 2010, the Legislature established the Big Game Management Account, funded by hunting license fees, to pay for research and habitat restoration to benefit big-game species. Senate Bill 370 clarifies the law to allow public and private entities, including nonprofit organizations and federally recognized tribes, to continue their valuable habitat work.

Doing so is critical to achieving program objectives including contracting for aerial surveys and captures of wild sheep, as well as important research at institutions like UC Davis and Humboldt State University.

SB 370 is sponsored by the California Deer Association and the California chapter of the Wild Sheep Foundation and is supported by more than a dozen outdoor sporting organizations. It was approved with overwhelming support of both the Assembly and Senate before being sent to the governor’s desk for a signature.

Dodd represents the Third Senate District, which includes all or portions of Napa, Solano, Yolo, Sonoma, Contra Costa and Sacramento counties.
