The Regional Action Plan (RAP) is the product of a year of collaboration during the COVID-19 pandemic by key Bay Area leaders, policymakers, stakeholders, and people with lived experience, to identify solutions homelessness and housing insecurity. The RAP is a roadmap to reduce unsheltered homelessness in the Bay Area by 75% in three years.
We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a Bay Area where homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring. To achieve that vision, the RAP introduces the “1-2-4 framework” for concurrent investment in interim housing, permanent housing, and homelessness prevention.
Since the launch of the RAP in April 2021, it has earned the formal endorsement of three counties, BART, and several cities, Continuums of Care, and homelessness advisory boards. To learn more about this plan and how your business or organization can formally endorse it and get involved, please contact Nahema Washington.
On April 13, 2021, we held a virtual launch event with the following speakers:
- Brandy Jenkins-League, Program Manager, Bay Area Community Services
- Cindy Chavez, Supervisor of Santa Clara County, Second District
- Libby Schaaf, Mayor, City of Oakland
- Ken Kirkey, Chief Partnership Officer of All Home
- Tomiquia Moss, Founder & Chief Executive of All Home
