Glenn County Plan to End Homelessness (published July 2019)

The County of Glenn, through its Community Action Department (CAD), in partnership with the Glenn County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA), has commissioned this 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness (the “Plan”) for the purpose of laying out a focused and practical strategy for addressing the issue of homelessness in Glenn County. The Plan addresses the unique challenges and needs of those who are homeless in Glenn County, a small, rural county with limited resources. 

Glenn County Economic Development Strategy 2019-2022

Glenn County created an economic development strategy in 2013 involving the engagement of many stakeholders to provide input to direction and actions. The strategy focus was on the county’s unique agricultural base.

Economic development strategies are typically updated every 3-5 years to adjust actions and tactics to the changing economic trends, opportunities and challenges. The purpose of this update is to report outcomes and reset, if needed, strategic initiatives.

The progress that has been made in economic development in Glenn County has far exceeded the 2013 expectations. The 2013 strategy engagement of stakeholders provided great focus, but implementation would be a challenge under the committee/team/volunteer structure that existed. That changed in 2016 when a director was hired. Health & Human Services Agency found resources for a position to move the strategy forward. Section 1.0 provides a deeper 2013-2018 overview.
