Washington, DC — Today, Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-CA) announced more than $2.2 million in federal funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Continuum of Care Program to help end homelessness in Ventura County.

“Ensuring that Ventura County remains an accessible place to live plays a key role in keeping our community vibrant and diverse,” said Congresswoman Brownley. “This grant will better enable our local government to help vulnerable families and individuals improve their quality of life and keep the fabric of our community strong.”

“Ventura County was awarded over 2.2 million dollars in Continuum of Care funding in the FY18 grant competition,” said Tara Carruth, Program Manager at Ventura County Continuum of Care. “The Ventura County Continuum of Care continues to score competitively and has successfully preserved renewal funding for 15 permanent housing programs across the county.
