CHICO, Calif. - In less than 24 hours, Butte County could be in a shelter crisis. The County Board of Supervisors is slated to discuss the matter Tuesday morning.

Should Butte County declare a shelter crisis, the county will be able to apply for roughly $4.9 million in one-time emergency assistance funding from the state.

The key word is, "apply."

All projects must be reviewed and approved by the county's continuum of care, or COC. The COC will decide which projects are approved and receive funding.

If the county does not declare a shelter crisis, then the county and unincorporated areas will not be eligible for emergency funding.

Quiet, beautiful and very warm weather for California today, but a lot of changes are coming over the next week. The first of several disturbances will approach on Tuesday, and it will lead to more wind, mainly mtn showers/t'storms, and a cooldown.
