SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that Glenn County and the City of Orland will receive $8.7 million for a supportive housing project.
The housing project is a part of Newsom’s Homekey projects that will provide 488 housing units for people who are or are at risk of being homeless.
In Glenn County, the project will build 33 units that will have onsite amenities like a central laundry room, two BBQ areas and a community area.
The project will also include several social services for people staying there. This includes behavioral health and employment skills.
The site will be at the Orlanda Inn which will be located near a grocery store, pharmacy, bus stop, library, employment center, medical/dental clinic and the Glenn County Health and Human Services Agency.
Newsom's office said the project will house those who are in the most need of housing first.
“Homekey is providing thousands of individuals with the supportive services they need and a safe place to call home," Newsom said in a news release. “We are continuing to act with urgency to fund quality Homekey projects, because that’s exactly what the moment demands – swift, decisive action to assist the most vulnerable Californians.”
Since the announcement of the Homekey projects, Newsom’s office said it has approved projects that would create nearly 3,000 housing units in California.
