The CA Department of Social Services (CDSS) recently established a new Housing and Disability Advocacy Program (HDAP). The 2017-18 California State Budget appropriated $43,461,000 for the program, which is available over a three-year period, from July 1, 2017, through June 30, 2020. The HDAP is a county-administered program that assists individuals (including those in families) who are (1) homeless and (2) may be eligible for disability benefits. The HDAP requires that counties offer outreach, case management, advocacy, and housing assistance to all program participants. Counties must apply for HDAP funds prior to October 31, 2017.
