Cal State University San Bernardino receives grant money

Grant will help fight riverbed homelessness

Riverside County has received a $12 million state grant that it will use to reduce homelessness in the San Jacinto riverbed.

The money from the Encampment Resolution Funding Program will pay for “housing, street outreach, and wrap-around services,” to address the issue of homelessness in and around the riverbed,” according to a statement on the county’s website.

“This funding will enable us to expand our efforts and implement comprehensive solutions to address homelessness in and around the San Jacinto riverbed,” said Supervisor Yxstian Gutierrez in the statement. “This is another opportunity to partner with the community to address homelessness”

Gutierrez, who represents the fifth district, helped secure the grant.

Services will include mental health support, substance abuse counseling, and help finding employment. County officials will work with San Jacinto and Hemet to determine exactly how the money will be spent.
