COVID-19 Assistance

In 2020, the State of California passed a budget and released a Homekey Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) that included $600 million to rapidly expand the inventory of housing available to homeless persons who were served by or were eligible for Project Roomkey, a state-wide initiative In response to the spread of COVID-19 to secure thousands of motel rooms in order to provide non-congregate shelter for vulnerable individuals. On April 21, 2021, HCD released a second NOFA for $50 million in CDBG-CV2 set-aside funds. These funds are available only to projects that applied for funds under the 2020 Homekey NOFA and are intended to provide additional support to Homekey projects for acquisition, rehabilitation and off-site infrastructure necessary for projects. Both local Homekey project sponsors sought the County’s partnership in pursuing and accessing these funds. 

The County proposes to submit two separate applications for CDBG-CV2 funds, one for the Oxnard Homekey Project and one for El Portal.

  • Oxnard Homekey Project (formerly the Vagabond Inn), a 70-room motel located in the City of Oxnard which currently operates under the Project Roomkey program and will ultimately undergo renovation and convert to 69 units of Permanent Supportive Housing for the Target Population. Please see the project specific relocation plan.
  • El Portal, an existing apartment building in the City of Ventura currently under renovation to provide 28 units of Permanent Supportive Housing, with 12 units reserved for the Target Population. Please see the project specific relocation plan.
