The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors has approved $3 million in additional funds for several homeless intervention projects, as part of a goal to reduce the number of homeless people in the county by 10 percent annually.

The funds will go to six local nonprofits as well as the cities of Rohnert Park, Petaluma and Sonoma, according a news release issued by county officials. The funding comes from Measure O, the quarter-cent sales tax measure voters approved in 2020 to fund mental health and homelessness services.

“Measure O continues to be a vital funding source for a wide range of mental health services, including investments in partner organizations focused on ending homelessness,” said Supervisor Chris Coursey, board chair. “Solving the homelessness crisis is a top priority of this board, and these funds will go a long way toward meeting that goal.”

Projects approved for funding include the SAVS Horizon Shine, a safe parking site in Sebastopol for people sheltering in RVs; SHARE, Sonoma County’s shared housing project for seniors countywide; and Rohnert Park’s safe sleeping site for homeless individuals.
