No plan to help in place

Despite the lack of shelters, despite state laws requiring emergency, transitional and supportive housing, despite a grant of $416,000, the homeless of Del Norte County will simply have to wait to receive support. 

Heather Snow, assistant director of Del Norte County Health & Human Services, said the process of rolling over $416,000 in available grant money from the state Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) into the Local Government Special Needs Housing Program may take a few months. Even then, Snow said, there are no project ideas in place to move forward in using the money.
