Public invited to provide feedback on veteran housing project
The San Bernardino County Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) invites members of the community, especially veterans, to review and provide feedback on the Liberty Lane Veteran Housing project, a Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Housing Program developed to provide permanent supportive housing for veterans with serious mental illness who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
The plan will be posted for review and public comment for 30 days from Oct. 15 to Nov. 14 at www.sbcounty.gov/dbh under the announcements heading.
The California Housing Finance Agency and the California Department of Health Care Services have jointly allocated approximately $20 million in funds to DBH for this MHSA Housing Program. These funds will be used in the development of permanent supportive housing for veterans with serious mental illness who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The project is proposed for development by A Community of Friends.
The Mental Health Services Act, Proposition 63, was passed by California voters in November 2004 and went into effect January 2005. The Act is funded by a 1 percent surcharge on personal income of more than $1 million per year.
For additional information, please contact Douglas Fazekas, Housing and Employment Program Administrative Manager, at (909) 421-9451.
DBH, through MHSA, is supporting the Countywide Vision by providing resources to promote wellness, recovery and resiliency in the community. Information on the Countywide Vision and the Department of Behavioral Health can be found at www.sbcounty.gov.
