Disaster Preparedness and Recovery for Homeless Systems in California

Under a contract with California’s Department of Housing and Community Development launched in 2019, TAC provided 24 mostly rural and suburban communities with capacity-building assistance to enhance their homeless crisis response systems. This has included helping the state to roll out a disaster toolkit for Continuums of Care that includes an emergency preparedness plan for emergency shelters, and a continuity of operations plan. We have also helped individual communities to strengthen their homeless systems’ disaster preparedness and response capacity. In Butte County, for instance, TAC helped the CoC prioritize funding based on post-disaster needs after the devastating Camp Fire. In San Francisco, TAC is helping to develop both an emergency preparedness plan and a continuity of operations plan, to ensure that operations continue for people experiencing homelessness during and after a disaster.
