Homekey Update

District 5 Newsletter Header for 2021

As promised in my last newsletter about Project Homekey, I will share updates with you as they become available. As seen with Project Homekey 1.0, per the State, we will likely be faced with an expedited timeline this time around as well. 

The County, along with Opening Doors Marin, hosted 10 Virtual Community Information sessions about Project Homekey 2.0. The goal of these sessions was to provide an overview of Homekey 1.0, describe what Homekey 2.0 might look like, and solicit community feedback about both the process and possible projects. If you were unable to attend one of the sessions, the recordings are available to be viewed on the Project Homekey Website. 


Project Homekey 1.0 resulted in the acquisition of 94 projects in California, representing 6,029 units of permanent housing for individuals experiencing homelessness. Marin County received approximately $8.6 million to aid the purchase of 63 new units of permanent supportive housing in San Rafael and Corte Madera.  


Marin County has issued a Request for Information for property owners/operators interested in selling a property to the County and/or its development partner through the upcoming Project Homekey 2.0 opportunity (contingent on grant funds being awarded and approval of an Option to Purchase Agreement by the Marin County Board of Supervisors). 


Appropriate properties include (but are not limited to): hotel/motel properties, certain commercial properties, mobile home/RV parks, and other properties that could be used for interim or permanent housing. Please see the Request for Information for Potential Homekey Properties webpage for more details, along with a question form and submission information.
