Hotel, Motel, Home: Creating Permanent Homes under Homekey

Host: San Joaquin Valley Affordable Housing Collaborative

This is a session on Day 2 of the San Joaquin Valley Affordable Housing Summit, September 21-23.

Project Homekey has evolved from its beginnings as a COVID response tool to a vital component of California’s strategy in providing homes for the unhoused.  In this workshop, we will go over Homekey basics, discuss early program success stories, and discuss the future of the program, including possibilities that go beyond hotel and motel conversions.  We will feature perspectives from those managing the program at HCD, and from those housing authorities and nonprofits using the program to provide homes to those in the greatest need.
