Access Center Only Contracts: Current contracts which only fund access center services will be extended from July 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019. Contracts for new providers of Access Centers & Access Points will be effective as of October 1, 2019 with a 60 day ramp up period and full program operations must begin on or before December 1, 2019.

The extensions of level funding and the contract extensions described above are being planned to address the following timing issues:

  • The Los Angeles Point in Time (PIT) count and other county homeless numbers are not finalized until late May and early June not allowing for enough time to plan effectively.
  • Ensure time is allocated for new providers for these program components to support their ramp up and implementation of services.
  • Plan the transition of current participants between providers. This may be required due to both new providers and the increase and decreased funding levels of agencies currently providing these services.
