Homeless System Redesign
In 2016 the City and County of Napa jointly contracted with Corporation for Supportive Housing and National Alliance to End Homelessness to develop recommendations for re-designing the community's homeless system and increasing supportive housing opportunities.
The City presented an update on the homeless system redesign at the April 4, 2017, City Council meeting. You can view the agenda, minutes and video from the meeting here.

The Housing Authority of the City of Napa participates on the Napa County Continuum of Care (COC) Board which includes representatives from various non-profit service providers, Napa County Health and Human Services, Napa City Police Department representatives, and formerly homeless. The COC submits an annual application for funding to the Federal Housing and Urban Development Department (HUD) for funds to fill the needs for housing and supportive services for the homeless in Napa County.
