Question: Can you indicate the number of hours and types of legal services Sacramento Steps Forward has required in recent years? What volume and types of services does SSF anticipate needing in coming years? What dollar amount has SSF budgeted for legal services next year?
Response: Past use of legal services by Sacramento Steps Forward is not indicative of what we expect for the future. Currently we anticipate having 20 federally funded contracts and 6-10 state funded contracts – expected to grow under Governor Newsome’s new budget that increases funding to end homelessness in CA. Additionally, we have about 12 locally funded contracts and additional operations oriented agreements such as our lease, equipment, etc.
