Sacramento County Receives $43 Million Bridge Housing Award

Last week, the State Department of Health Care Services announced that Sacramento County Behavioral Health Services (BHS) will be awarded more than $43 million in Behavioral Health Bridge Housing (BHBH) funds to support its​ efforts to address homelessness and improve the lives of individuals living with serious mental illness and experiencing housing instability.

The BHBH award will enable Sacramento County BHS to expand interim housing by adding 110 beds across three Safe Stay communities. This County-sanctioned bridge housing will provide individuals experiencing homelessness with a safe and supportive environment to stabilize their health and safety. Additionally, the funding will facilitate the development or renovation of shovel-ready projects for another 100 beds, including renovated hotels, board and care homes, and sober living facilities. These clean and well-maintained sites will offer on-site supportive services to help individuals transition towards permanent housing.
