Since 1995, the Pasadena Partnership to End Homelessness has served as the lead agency for the Pasadena Continuum of Care. The Continuum of Care (CoC) is a planning process implemented by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in 1994. As one of the largest sources of federal funding for programs that address the needs of people who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless, HUD recognized the need for a more coordinated, collaborative, and community-driven approach to allocating resources to communities. The Continuum of Care process is the process by which communities identify local needs, develop strategies, and submit a single application to HUD for funding for programs designed to meet the needs in the community.

The Pasadena Partnership is governed by a Board of Directors composed of representatives from the community. In its role as the lead agency for the CoC, the Pasadena Partnership promotes integrated, community-wide strategies and plans to prevent and end homelessness; provides coordination among the numerous local organizations and initiatives that serve the homeless population, and manage the CoC’s single, comprehensive grant application to HUD for McKinney-Vento funding which includes Continuum of Care funds and State Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds.

New Homelessness Funding Survey

In June 2018, Governor Brown signed Senate Bill (SB 850) into law which authorizes $500 million in flexible block grant funding across the state. The Homeless Emergency Aid Program is designed to provide direct and immediate emergency assistance to cities and counties in order to address the homelessness crisis. These funds are not intended to supplement existing programs, but rather to fulfill the immediate unmet needs of the unsheltered population experiencing homelessness. These funds provide a unique opportunity to implement innovative and new ideas that can be immediately implemented upon distribution.   The Pasadena CoC is eligible for an estimated $1.42 million in one-time funding to be used over the course of a two year time frame. The guidelines of this program are intentionally broad to allow for creative proposals from local communities that meet specific identified needs and challenges. The California Emergency Solutions and Housing (CESH) Program also provides funds for a variety of activities to assist persons experiencing or at risk of homelessness as authorized by SB 580. The Pasadena CoC is eligible for an estimated $720,243 in CESH funds.
