Existing law requires the Governor to create an Interagency Council on Homelessness, consisting of specified members, and provides specified goals for the council, including to coordinate existing funding and applications for competitive funding. Existing law requires the council to create a statewide data system, which is known as the Homeless Data Integration System, that collects local data through the Homeless Management Information System, with a goal of matching data on homelessness to programs impacting homeless recipients of state programs. Existing law authorizes the council to collect data from continuums of care. Existing law defines state programs as any programs a California state agency or department funds, implements, or administers for the purpose of providing housing or housing-based services to people experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness, except as specified.The bill would additionally require the council to include the Governor’s Tribal Advisor. The bill would remove the above-mentioned reference to competitive funding and would instead require the council to coordinate applications for funding. The bill would require council staff to develop and regularly maintain a strategic funding guide and a calendar of new or existing funding opportunities. The bill would require agencies and departments administrating state programs to provide the council updated information on new or existing funding opportunities on a quarterly basis. The bill would also require, rather than authorize, the council to collect data from continuums of care, and would require council staff to collect fiscal and outcome data from grantees and entities operating state programs that are required to enter data on the individuals and families they serve, as specified. The bill would require the grantees and entities to submit the fiscal and outcome data to council staff on or before October 1, 2026, and annually thereafter. The bill would require council staff to make the data publicly available on or before January 31, 2027, and annually thereafter.
