The Task Force on Homelessness was established by the City Council in 1999 to address the issue of homelessness in Simi Valley. The Task Force provides policy recommendations to the City Council to assist in developing the community's response to homelessness. The Task Force is comprised of representatives from the City Council, regional and local services providers, and government agencies providing services to individuals experiencing and at risk of homelessness.
The Task Force meets quarterly. All Task Force meetings are open to the public. Information for upcoming meetings is available below. Those interested in receiving meeting and other information related to the Task Force's efforts can sign up to receive email notifications.
Additionally, City staff represents the City through involvement with the Ventura County Continuum of Care to ensure that the City's efforts take into account regional efforts and federal policies to maximize effectiveness. The Continuum of Care coordinates the regional Point In Time Count and prepared a brief summary of the findings to detail the state of homelessness in Ventura County.

The Community Projects Grant Review Committee (CPG Review Committee) was appointed by the City Council as an advisory body to assist in the review and evaluation of CPG funding requests. The overall requests received routinely exceed the $150,000 available each year.
This meeting serves as an orientation for CPG Review Committee members to focus on their roles and responsibilities in this portion of the review and will include a discussion of the criteria used to evaluate the funding requests. Please note the merits of the individual funding requests will not be discussed at this time.
On May 3, 2018, the CPG Review Committee will have a public meeting to evaluate and make a recommendation on the funding requests received. The recommendation will be forwarded to City Council for consideration at a June meeting.
Interested members of the public are welcome to attend both CPG Review Committee meetings and are encouraged to review the agenda packets in advance. For more information please visit the Community Projects Grant webpage or call (805) 583-6864.
