EMERGENCY RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (ERAP) FUNDING

 

Solano County is pleased to announce that Catholic Charities will be administering $13.3 million in ERAP funds to Solano County Residents. The Emergency Rental Assistance Program (“ERAP”) is a federal initiative that primarily covers rental arrears for low-income households with the goal of allowing those households to remain in their current homes. The program may also cover utility arrears, housing stability case management, and a limited amount of prospective rental assistance. The program is intended to benefit renters who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. Please consult this general flyer to learn more about available resources and application instructions.

  • The phone number for Solano County ERAP is: 707-400-0741​

  • The tenant application can be accessed here.

  • The landlord application can be accessed here.

POINT-IN-TIME COUNT

The Housing First Solano Continuum of Care (CoC) PIT Count Workgroup has decided to utilize a COVID-19-related waiver being offered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to postpone the unsheltered PIT Count from January 25, 2021 to early 2022 in order to protect the health and safety of all those involved. The 2021 sheltered PIT count will continue as planned. No federal or state homeless assistance funding will be in jeopardy as a result of this decision and most Bay Area CoCs have also postponed their PIT Counts. To learn more about how to get involved in the 2022 PIT Count, please visit the volunteer registration portal.

HOW TO SUBMIT A GRIEVANCE

Are you currently receiving homeless services in Solano County? Have you been discharged from a program or denied ​housing or services? Have you been discharged from a program or denied housing or services? Do you have a complaint about those services you would like to submit? If so, please submit a completed grievance form to solano@homebaseccc.org.

The Housing First Solano Continuum of Care (CoC)/CAP Solano JPA Participant Grievance Policy applies to all participants in housing and homeless service programs funded by the CAP Solano JPA and/or the Housing First Solano Continuum of Care (HFS CoC). This policy provides participants with the right to grieve any situation where they are denied housing or services by a program. This covers denials of housing or services because of rule violations, non-compliance with program requirements, or not meeting program eligibility.

The goal of this policy is to provide program participants and service providers with a fair and equitable process. If you are a participant in a JPA/CoC-funded housing or homelessness program in Solano County and have been issued a denial of housing/services from a JPA/CoC-funded agency, you may submit an Appeal Request Form. You may also complete the form to request an investigation if you have a complaint that is not being or has not been addressed through the Participant Grievance Policy.

This form should be completed by the participant but may be written by someone on the participant's behalf. Any personal information related to the complaint should be submitted with the form. Choosing not to submit personal information may reduce the ability to do further investigation of the grievance. The form and personal information will be kept confidential. The complainant should receive a confirmation of receipt and a date for review of their complaint within 5 business days, not including Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.
