The California Interagency Council on Homelessness (Cal ICH) issued a Notice of Intent to Award $4,079,416 in Encampment Resolution Funding (ERF) to the City of Salinas. This grant will support Health & Safety Day projects (services and clean-up efforts at encampment sites) along the mile-long stretch of land from Natividad Creek Park to Main Street, which intersects with Laurel Drive, Carr Lake, and Sherwood Drive. 

This funding will be utilized for Health & Safety Day activities, including:

  • Outreach and engagement at encampment sites
  • Mobile healthcare services
  • Basic needs and wraparound services
  • Service coordination, referrals, transportation, and interim and permanent housing solutions
  • Encampment site restoration

The City is in the development stages of the implementation plan for this project. Project updates will be provided as available.
