Last month, many Bay Area media organizations coordinated coverage of homelessness. While the effort centered on San Francisco, Alameda County received attention as well. Coverage included a San Francisco Chronicle Op-Ed dated 6-30-16 by former HCSA Director Alex Briscoe (PDF). Damon Francis stressed the importance of federal funding in an Associated Press story: "It's really very hard to solve with local budgets, and I think that's the real challenge of local journalism," he said. "We do need those federal dollars back to change these rental markets."
