Thursday, October 5, 2017

Gov. Jerry Brown signed Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry’s AB 317, providing Napa County with permanent, annual funding to support the three farmworker housing centers totaling 180 beds.

Beginning in the next budget cycle, the Napa County Housing Authority will receive $250,000 in matching dollars each year. The bill had been promoted as private-public model for farmworker housing developed by Napa County.
