Alameda County has set ambitious targets for 2026 – to ensure the availability of diverse and affordable housing for all residents with the goal of eliminating homelessness in Alameda County. These 10x goals are part of the County’s Vision 2026.
In response to the growing housing crisis, the County will deepen our investment and build on the work already happening to strengthen partnerships with local cities and other stakeholders; maximize the Measure A1 Housing Bond; and leverage new funding to address homelessness and support affordable housing in our communities. The Alameda County Homelessness Action Plan 2018-21 sets forth a plan for the County to invest approximately $340 million over the next three years toward the goal of ending homelessness in Alameda County.
Home Together Investment Plan: Local Solutions to Homelessness
In May of 2020 Alameda County Supervisors, the Alameda County office of Homeless Care and Coordination and Homeless Service Providers EveryOne Home and St. Mary’s Center hosted a series of Town Hall meetings to introduce the Home Together Investment Plan – a half-cent sales tax proposal for the November 2020 ballot to fund homeless housing and services, and a robust and efficient strategic response to homelessness across the county.
