Specifications include, but are not limited to:Homelessness in King County is in a state of emergency. In 2015 alone, nearly 10,000 people are experiencing homelessness on any given day in King County. This is an increase from about 8,000 people in 2005. Nearly 40 percent of these homeless persons are unsheltered. During the winter months those without homes are challenged even further to survive.Regional and national issues of housing affordability, income inequality, a diminishing state and federal safety net, and population growth have vastly exacerbated the problem. King County and municipalities throughout the county have stepped up to provide shelter and support for people in crisis. Despite these efforts even more people are living on the streets than 10 years ago.In November of this year King County Executive Dow Constantine declared a local proclamation of emergency due to homelessness affecting King County. King County has pledged to continue to work with all of the municipalities within King County on plans to address homelessness. The County will also take actions that support, and are within the framework, of the All Home Strategic Plan and its goals of making homelessness rare, and if it occurs, brief, and one-time only. Part of King Countys immediate actions included securing additional shelter beds and services for people experiencing homelessness.In response to this homeless state of emergency, King County Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) is making available approximately $325,000, depending on available resources, in one-time funding to further efforts to meet basic shelter needs in King County, outside the City of Seattle. Specifically, DCHS is adding funding for new nighttime shelter beds, expanding existing nighttime shelter beds or increasing the number of nights a shelter is open. Additionally, King County is seeking homeless day center services in South King County.Funds may be used for operating support and supportive services tailored to increasing access to resources leading to housing stability. This investment is intended to further strengthen alignment with broader county-wide efforts to make homelessness rare, brief, and one-time and DCHSs mission to ensure that all people are stably housed.
