Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness in Placer County

In 2004, representatives from a wide range of community agencies and organizations, public and private, gathered to address the concerns of homelessness in Placer County. The groups represented included local county and city governments, non-profit organizations concerned with public welfare and citizen well-being, such as the Salvation Army, churches, and educational institutions. The City of Roseville was a participant in the discussions, and in creating plans to address the root causes of homelessness in the county.

After several meetings, the group created a detailed plan to work to end homelessness in Placer County in ten years, from 2004 to 2014, through partnerships and the cooperation of all participating groups in the county.

Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness in Placer County


The Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act of 2009 (HEARTH Act) amended the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. Among the changes, the HEARTH Act consolidates the three separate McKinney-Vento homeless assistance programs (Supportive Housing program, Shelter Plus Care program, and Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation SRO program) into a single grant program known as the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program. The HEARTH Act also codifies into law the CoC and the year-round planning requirements that have long been encouraged as part of HUD's annual, competitive application for funding to assist homeless persons.

The CoC Program is designed to assist individuals (including unaccompanied youth) and families experiencing homelessness and to provide the services needed to help such individuals move into transitional and permanent housing, with the goal of long-term stability. More broadly, the program is designed to promote community-wide planning and strategic use of resources to address homelessness; improve coordination and integration with mainstream resources and other programs targeted to people experiencing homelessness; improve data collection and performance measurement; and allow each community to tailor its program to the particular strengths and challenges within that community.

The Homeless Resource Council of the Sierras (HRCS) is a regional effort involving government agencies, service providers, and faith based organizations that have come together to address homelessness, chronic homelessness, and develop a discharge coordination policy through the Continuum of Care (CoC) planning process. The Nevada-Placer Homeless Continuum of Care Governance Board (Governance Board) is a regional planning body of representative stakeholders in the community’s work toward ending homelessness which coordinates the community’s policies, strategies, and activities toward ending homelessness. Its work includes gathering and analyzing information in order to determine the local needs of people experiencing homelessness, implement strategic responses and measure results. The City participates within the framework of the Governance Board of the Homeless Resource Council of the Sierras.

The CoC also sets the local process for applying, reviewing and prioritizing project applications for funding each year in the Homeless Assistance Grants competition. The City also actively participates in the HRCS' efforts to submit applications for HEARTH funds in conjunction with the CoC. In addition to HEARTH funds, the homeless providers involved in the CoC process are expected to receive funding from a variety of federal, state, and local sources, including State administered Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), Emergency Housing Assistance Program (EHAP), charitable organizations and private donations.

As a condition to receive federal funding HUD requires all Continuum of Care (CoC) to conduct a Housing Inventory Count (HIC) and Point-in-Time (PIT) count of sheltered homeless persons during the last ten days in January, (in odd numbered years).

The Housing Inventory Count (HIC) is a report that informs the homeless assistance community on the capacity to house persons who are homeless at local and national levels.

The Point-in-Time Count (PIT) provides the homeless assistance community with the data needed to understand the number and characteristics of persons who are homeless at one point-in-time.

The HIC is a snapshot of the CoC's housing inventory on a single night during the last ten days in January.

If you need additional information regarding the HIC or PIT, please visit the Virtual Help Desk on HUD's Homeless Resource Exchange (HRE) at: HUD HRE Help Desk.
