New money to help the homeless in Santa Barbara

Hosted by

As California continues to find ways to address homelessness, one approach has been to give out grants to local governments and nonprofits. This month, the city of Santa Barbara received $2 million for plan to that includes wrap-around services, with things like a street nurse and restorative police officer. But the $2 million is a much smaller number than the city originally wanted. Still, city staff is hopeful that this amount will help service a homeless population of around 900 people citywide.
