Where to put low-income trailers? County of Humboldt contributes $100,000 to the search

EUREKA, CA. – The County of Humboldt will contribute $100,000 to help in the relocation of seven PG&E-donated trailers, to be used for transitional low-income housing.

In September, the trailers were donated to the Betty Kwan Chinn Homeless Foundation.

They’re currently placed at Hilfiker Lane in Eureka, but need a permanent lot, as the permitting process for their current coastal zone location was deemed excessive.

Several county-owned locations were proposed to Supervisors on Tuesday.

They determined none were suitable, but agreed to provide $100,000 in funding to the city of Eureka to cover location-search costs.

The trailers were once offices at the King Salmon Power Plant, and will house between 50 to 60 people.
