HCD stated that it has adopted a risk-based, on-site monitoring approach for its CalHome and Supportive Housing programs similar to the monitoring methodology used for the Emergency Housing Program and it provided a copy of its risk assessment tool. Further, HCD’s current manager developed and implemented a centralized tracking log for the site monitoring, which contains the name of the recipient (contractor) and the dates of the following: site visit and completion, letter of findings, and clearance of findings.
