From the Housing Authority of the County of San Bernardino's press release:

On October 23, 2020 Governor Gavin Newsom announced that partners Mountain Homeless Coalition and the Housing Authority of the County of San Bernardino received $1.1 million in the sixth round of awards for Homekey. California’s innovative $600 million program to purchase and rehabilitate housing, including hotels, motels, vacant apartment buildings and other properties and convert them into permanent long-term housing for people experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness.

This funding will fund the acquisition and rehabilitation of 8 short-term vacation cabins in Big Bear Lake, CA, two of which will be manufactured homes. These cabins will become permanent homes for families and individuals experiencing homelessness, with priority given to elderly individuals with disabilities who are at risk of health complications from COVID-19.

“We are honored to receive this much needed funding to provide affordable housing in a remote portion of San Bernardino County. We look forward to converting these rental cabins into future homes,” states Maria Razo, HACSB’s Executive Director.
