Last night the Council approved a loan from a developer fees fund to support the Home Key Grant proposal which found itself with a $4.9M budget gap days before they were to submit the grant proposal. (6/20/23 Agenda Item Z.1 Homekey 3 Joint Application for a Permanent Supportive Housing Project).
CM Robinson supported this item. Richmond has no supportative housing to help transition the chronically homeless off the streets and that fully supports them as they reintegrate back into the community. There is no way we can adequately address homelessness without this important tool for those who are the hardest to reach. This is an investment in our community and the people who are most in need.
CM Robinson looks forward to hearing back from the grant committee.
