From the VC Star:
Gov. Gavin Newsom announced $236 million in housing funds Monday, including a $1.2 million award to the City of San Buenaventura Housing Authority.
The Project Homekey funding will go toward the housing authority's rehabilitation of the El Portal apartments in Ventura's Westside community, which will create 28 affordable units. The funding will allow the housing authority to set aside 12 of those units as permanent supportive housing units for formerly homeless individuals.
"We're excited about this project on a couple of fronts," said Denise Wise, CEO of the Housing Authority of the City of San Buenaventura. "This does show a really progressive effort on the part of the state to work toward solving homelessness, and we're excited that we were able to bring this money into the city of Ventura and can work toward solving homelessness within our community."
