Homelessness Programs

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.

Currently, funding received under the COC include permanent supportive housing and rapid rehousing programs. This includes the Shelter Plus Care Program, operated by the Housing Authority, which provides rental assistance to formerly chronically homeless individuals. Referrals to this program are made through the County which provides supportive services for participants. The program assistance approximately eight very-low income households.

Clothes Washer Rebate

2017:  $100 Rebate Available!

The clothes washer is typically the second largest water user inside the home, after toilets.  While older traditional washers may use more than 40 gallons of water per load, new high-efficiency models use less than 18 gallons, saving more than 50% in water and energy costs.  High-efficiency washers also require less detergent, are gentler on your clothes, and result in shorter drying times.  The U.S. EPA's Energy Star Program certifies clothes washers to assist consumers, and has developed new criteria to label exceptional products as Energy Star Most Efficient.

agencies logoFor 2017, the City of Napa is participating in the Bay Area Residential High-Efficiency Clothes Washer Rebate Program, partnering locally with the Napa Sanitation District to offer a combined rebate on certain high-efficiency models.  For 2017 purchases made through December 31, models meeting Energy Star Most Efficient criteria qualify for a $100 rebate, comprised of $50 each from the City of Napa and the Napa Sanitation District.

This City/Napa Sanitation District rebate is supported by a Prop 84 Grant administered by the California Department of Water Resources.

NOTE: Qualifying washers purchased since January 1, 2017 are eligible.

Models using Silver Ion technology are not eligible for the rebate. 

For rebate application, instructions, and complete program details:
