At the January 26, 2021 Council meeting, staff presented the Draft Comprehensive Strategic Plan to Address Homelessness (CSPAH) in which a framework of goals and strategic actions were identified to address homelessness in Garden Grove. The Community and Economic Development Department (CEDD) is currently engaging the community to receive feedback on the Draft CSPAH and to provide information on resources available to the homeless and at-risk populations. A summary of these engagement activities are provided in Attachment No. 1 and briefly summarized below:
1. Landlord/Tenant Workshops
2. Homelessness 101 Workshop
3. Advocacy 101 Workshop
4. Workforce Activation & Readiness Program (WARP) Webinar
5. Business Assistance Webinars

Currently programmed for May 2021 is the launch of a CSPAH community survey aimed at obtaining feedback regarding the Draft CSPAH and its various components. The survey will target all five sectors of the community (residents, businesses, non-profits, churches, and philanthropists) and the comments received will be incorporated into the Final CSPAH. It is anticipated the Final CSPAH to be presented for approval in June 2021.
