Over the past year, ECORP has assisted the City of Victorville with environmental services for the proposed 4.5-acre Victorville Wellness Center Campus, located at 16902 First Street. The Campus will be the first facility of its kind in San Bernardino County, combining a low-barrier emergency shelter, recuperative care facility, medical clinic, interim housing, and wraparound support services. The city applied for various State and Federal funding to help with the construction and operation of the Wellness Center Campus.

In July 2021, ECORP initiated the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) environmental review process for the project. An Initial Study/Environmental Assessment was prepared by ECORP along with United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) related forms. ECORP also prepared an array of technical studies including cultural and biological resources, air quality, greenhouse gas, and noise impact studies. Because the project is located within the 100-year floodplain, the HUD 8-Step Process for Projects in a Floodplain or Wetland was also prepared.

In December 2021, the City of Victorville announced that it had been awarded a $28-million Homekey Grant from the California Department of Housing and Community Development for the construction and operational support of its Wellness Center Campus. The City of Victorville is the first jurisdiction in Southern California to benefit from the second round of the state’s Homekey Grant program. This Wellness Center Campus will be a critical component in the City’s strategy to reduce homelessness, providing 170 interim housing beds and support services to help people gain stability. Construction of the Wellness Center Campus is set to begin in 2022 and reach completion in 2023.
